GOVERNOR WILLIAMS. 




ON. JOSEPH HARTVVELL WILLIAMS was born 
in Augusta, Maine, February 15, 18 14, being the only son 
of Reuel Williams and Sarah Lowell, daughter of Hon. 
Daniel Cony, who came to Maine from Massachusetts in the year 
1778, and settled in that part of Hallowell which is now Augusta. 
Like his father, Mr. Williams has resided in his native town from 
his birth. He was named after a notable farmer in Massachusetts, 
whose remarkable industry, intelligence, probity and thrift were 
regarded by appreciative friends as constituting elements of char- 
acter worthy of imitation, and they were early and often eulogized 
by the father with a view to stimulate like excellence in the son. 
Young Williams enjoyed the best advantages for acquiring an 
education. At the age of twelve years he was sent from home to a 
boarding-school for boys, in the family of Rev. Hezekiah Packard, 
S. T. D., of Wiscasset, and later became a student at the Gardiner 
Lyceum, then at the height of its prosperity. In 1829 he entered 
the Classical Institute at Mount Pleasant, in Amherst, Mass., a 
school of like grade and excellence as the celebrated Round Hill 
School, in the adjoining town of Northampton. 



250 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

Mount Pleasant Institute was highly recommended by Rev. Dr. 
Tappan, of Augusta, whose son, Rev. Benjamin Tappan, D. D., of 
Norridgewock, accompanied Williams to Amherst and became his 
chum and fellow student. Williams remained at Mount Pleasant 
until the summer of 1830, when he entered the Freshman class 
of Harvard College. From the outset he became a diligent and 
exemplary student, and to the end of his college career maintained 
a high rank among the best scholars in his class. In his Senior 
year he was honored by his classmates as their choice for class 
orator, and delivered the valedictory oration at the class ceremonies 
which closed the academic year. Upon leaving college in 1834 he 
entered Dane Law School at Cambridge, where he enjoyed and 
highly prized the instruction of Professors Joseph Story and Simon 
Greenleaf for the greater part of two years, and then returned to 
Augusta to complete his law studies in his father's office. 

He was admitted to the bar in 1837, and immediately succeeded 
to the lucrative practice of his father, who retired from the pro- 
fession on being elected that year to a seat in the U. S. Senate. 
From that period young Williams was busily occupied in the 
practice of law until July, 1862, when the decease of his father, and 
the consequent cares of settling his estate, made it necessary for 
him to withdraw from a profession well suited to his taste, and to 
the attainment of whose honors and emoluments he had devoted 
the prime of his life and the ripe years of middle age. It was in 
the early part of the year 1862 that he received, at the hands of 
Governor Washburn, the compliment of a nomination to a seat 
upon the bench of the Supreme Judicial Court of Maine, but, in 
view of the increasing age and infirmities of his father, then 
close upon his eightieth year, and the necessity of giving his 
undivided attention to family interests, he put aside the tempting 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 251 

offer and declined a position which, under other circumstances, 
would have been regarded by him as the crowning honor of 
his life. 

It was in the year 1857 that Mr. Williams was first called to take 
part in public affairs. Before attaining to the voting age he had 
become imbued with the doctrines of the Democratic party of that 
period, and he supported the policy and candidates of that organ- 
ization until 1854, when, as a member of the Democratic State 
convention of that year, and chairman of the Committee on 
Resolutions, he felt compelled to dissent from expressing approval 
of the administration of President Pierce, who had forfeited, in his 
opinion, all claim to further allegiance by an approval of the bill to 
repeal the Missouri Compromise. From that time Mr. Williams 
ceased to vote with the Democratic party as long as the interests of 
slavery continued to shape political issues. In 1856 he took an 
active part in the presidential election, and entered the canvass as 
a volunteer speaker in support of the Fremont ticket, doing 
yeoman's service wherever called, but with no thought of being 
recognized for promotion at the end of the campaign. On returning 
home, however, from a week's absence just before the annual State 
election, he found his name had been put upon the Republican ticket 
for Kennebec senators by a county convention, which had met, 
acted and adjourned without previous public intimation of such a 
purpose. The result was an election of the ticket bearing his name; 
which afterward proved to be a call, not merely to a sphere of 
public duty in the State senate, but after six weeks of service as 
president of that body, it became his constitutional prerogative to 
enter upon the discharge of Executive functions, in place of Gov- 
ernor Hamlin, who vacated his ofHce upon being elected a senator 
of the United States. These important duties Mr. Williams per- 



252 Maine Historical a7td Genealogical Recorder. 

formed to the evident satisfaction of the people of the State for the 
remainder of that political year. The vantage-ground of this 
position might have justified an aspiration to continue in it ,by 
courting an election by the people; but the proffered influence of 
friends to compass that elevation was promptly and firmly re- 
pressed by him. Although a temperate man from his youth up, he 
well knew that so long as he did not regard " Prohibition " as the 
final word in the science of political as well as social ethics, he could 
not look for support from those who answered to no other rallying- 
cry, and whose active co-operation was generally regarded as 
essential to Republican success. At the close of the year 1857, 
therefore, Mr. Williams returned to the congenial pursuits of his 
profession. 

When the fratricidal war between the States broke out, Mr^ 
Williams at once gave his hearty support to all measures — State 
and National — to sustain the Union; and in the autumn of 1863, 
at the desire of his kinsman and neighbor. Governor Cony, he con- 
sented to accept a nomination for representative in the legislature 
of 1864, and he was chosen for that year, and afterward for the two 
following years. During these several periods of legislative service 
he was placed upon the committee of finance, being chairman of 
it in 1865 and 1866; and also served on one or another of the 
several committees on the judiciary, railroads, and the Hospital 
for the insane during the same periods. 

He earnestly seconded the financial suggestions of Governor 
Cony in his messages to the legislature, and in the session of 1865 
he reported from the finance committee and advocated the heroic 
measure of taxation by which the annual State assessment was 
raised that year to the startling amount (for Maine) of two millions 
and a half of dollars; believing that the burden, great as it was, 



Mai7ie Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 253 

could be more easily borne in that form at that time than by an 
increase of loans, already large, to be paid at a later day, with the 
risk of unfavorable changes in commercial values when their 
maturity should arrive. 

He also heartily labored for the creation and establishment of a 
sinking fund to provide for the payment of the State debt, and 
drafted the bill for that purpose, which became a law January 28, 
1865. The text of this law was afterward adopted by the legisla- 
ture of 1868 when they came to deal with the subject of a loan for 
the "equalization of municipal war debts," and its wisdom as a 
measure of finance received the sanction of the people of Maine 
when they voted to amend their constitution so that the inchoate 
act of March 7, 1868, could take effect. 

He regarded himself fortunate that it fell to his lot to share the 
felicitations extended to the legislature of that year when they voted 
to ratify the proposed amendment of the constitution of the United 
States, whereby slavery was abolished. 

Mr. Williams was at a later period returned to the legislature, 
at the election in September, 1873, by those who voted an inde- 
pendent ticket for representatives; but the canvass was made 
during his absence on a journey, without consulting him, and 
his service at the session of 1874 was reluctantly entered upon. 
His inability to resist successfully the legislation of that year 
touching the government of the Insane Hospital, was a source of 
chagrin to him at the time, and subsequent events affecting the 
administration of that institution have only confirmed his regret. 
The original law for its government steered clear of the exigencies 
of contending parties in the State — which are inevitable under our 
republican system — and kept the superintendent and employees 
of the hospital safe from the caprices which often govern the 



254 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

bestowal of political patronage; and he looked upon its repeal and 
the substituted legislation respecting appointments not only as 
unwise, but mischievous, in its tendency to undermine public 
confidence in appointees — so essential to the attainment of the 
legitimate objects of any hospital for the insane. 

He was one of the first board of directors of the Maine General 
Hospital, and continued to hold that trust for several years. He 
was also a trustee of the State Reform School, to which office he 
was appointed by Governor Crosby in 1853. Among the more 
private trusts committed to his hands was the agreeable duty of 
fostering the interests and objects of the Cony Female Academy, 
in Augusta, as one of its board of trustees; having been elected a 
member of the board in 185 1, and serving as treasurer to the 
present time. The commodious and substantial academy, erected 
in 1880, and now transferred, by the action of the trustees, to the 
uses of a free high school for the city of Augusta, will stand, not 
only as a monument to the generous founder of the institution, 
but as evidence of Mr. Williams' personal devotion, in connection 
with his associate trustees, to the cause of good learning 
and the highest welfare of his native city. Mr. Williams was 
married September 26, 1842, to Apphia Putnam, daughter of the 
distinguished antiquarian and genealogist, Sylvester Judd, of 
Northampton, Mass., who was also the father of Rev. Sylvester 
Judd, formerly pastor of the Unitarian Church in Augusta, whose 
brilliant pastorate is well remembered, and whose published works 
in the field of polite literature still attest his genius and scholarly 
attainments. 

Mr. Williams' only child, Arthur Lowell, was born August 3, 
1844, and died December 15, 1846.

A GENEALOGICAL NOTE. 



By JOSEPH H. WILLIAMS, 1890. 



The genealogy of the subject of the foregoing sketch has been already accurately 
given, to some extent, by the historian of Augusta — Hon. James W. North (1870) 
— but he was not able to trace the lineage farther back than Richard Williams, 
who came to New England about the year 1636-7, and made a permanent settle- 
ment in Taunton, Mass., in 1637. 

Unceasing efforts have been made by his descendants to ascertain not only his 
nativity, but the line of his ancestry as well: but they have been obliged to rest, 
for the most part, in certain old traditions which have survived the lapse of almost 
two centuries. The Rev. Samuel Hopkins Emery in his "Ministry of Taunton, 
Mass. (1853)," has given us the contents of "a MS. of considerable antiquity," 
which states that " Richard Williams was descended from a family of that name in 
Glamorganshire, Wales, and found a wife in Gloucestershire." It is true that Mr. 
James Savage, in his Genealogical Dictionary (1869), ventured to discredit the 
statement that our immigrant ancestor found a wife in Gloucestershire, but 
recent researches have confirmed its truth. 

Another tradition, as given by Hon. Francis Baylies of Taunton, Mass.. in his 
" Historical Memoir of the Colony of New Plymouth (1828)," still has its believers, 
although it has not yet been verified by recorded proof. The language of Mr- 
Baylies is, that "Richard Williams was born as early as 1599, and a tradition 
has alv\ays existed among his descendants that he was related by blood to 
Oliver Cromwell." 

A tradition like this, in the ordinal y course of human events, would have taken 
its rise during the lifetime of Deacon Richard, and probably within his immediate 
fandly circle; and surely every one of his descendants now living would 
instinctively, if not indignantly, repel a suggestion from any quarter that he would 
have asseited, or that any of his family would have countenanced for a moment' 
a baseless claim to the distinction of the kinship in question. Certainly there is 
nothing in such consanguinity that should be regarded as preposterous or improb- 
able ; and ancient records, with modern facilities for access to them, may yet 
disclose a lineage which will show a common ancestor connecting our Richard 
with Oliver Cromwell. 



256 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 

That both Oliver Cromwell and Richard Williams " sprung from Glamorgan- 
shire " remains an unquestioned fact; and we know that Cromwell's blood was 
that of a "Williams," for he was a lineal descendant, in the male line, of Morgan 
Williams of Glamorganshire. Oliver's great grandfather, Sir Richard Williams, 
assumed the ?ia??ie " Cromwell," it is true, but not until, in mature years, he had 
distinguished himself in the public service (temp. Henry VIII), under the patron- 
age of his uncle Thomas Cromwell (Vicar General, 1535), whom he proposed to 
honor by the adoption of his name. In fact Sir Richard ever afterward used to 
sign himself, " Richard Cromwell, alias Williams " ; and his sons and grandsons. 
and Oliver himself in his youth (1620), used to sign in the same manner. In 
important grants from the crown to Sir Richard (29 and 31, Henry VIII), the 
grantee's name appears in both forms, "Cromwell alias Williams," and "Wil- 
liams alias Cromwell." ' 

The recent researches, herein referred to, have resulted in discovering the 
parentage and family of Richard W'illiams, and of his wife, Frances Dighton. 

The first advance towards this result was the discovery by Henry F. Waters, 
M. A., of two wills in England, abstracts of which are given in the New England 
Historical and Genealogical Register, Vol. 37. 

The first was that of Jane Williams, of Whetenhurst, county of Gloucester, 
spinster, dated May 31, 1650, and proved June 30, 1655. It mentions her brother 
Samuel Williams; her brother Richard \A'illiams and her sister Elizabeth Williams, 
"that are in New England;" Benjamin Williams and Nathaniel Williams, " the 
two sons of my brother Sanuiel \^'illiams ;" and John Hall the younger, " my 
sister's eldest son," and Samuel, Daniel and Susanna, " the other three children of 
my brother-in-law John Mall." 

The second will was that of Eenjainfin \^'^ ltainls, of Stoke, near Guldeford, 
Surrey county, schoolmaster, dated July 2, 1695, proved Sept. 22, 1698. It men- 
tions his brother Nathaniel Williams; his cousins, Susanna Flail, John, Samuel and 
rJaniel Hall, now or late of W^hetenhurst, Gloucester county ; * * * * "my 
cousins," Samuel, Thomas and Benjamin Williams, of New England; "my cousin 
Elizabeth Bird, of Dorchester, in New England;" the eldest child of "my cousin " 
[Nathaniel] Williams, of New England, deceased; the eldest child of "my cousin 
Joseph Williams, deceased," and also the eldest child of "my cousin" Hannah 
Parmater. 

' Sec " Graiil of Hinchinbrook Nunnery,'" and " Ciiant of Ramsey Abbey." 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 257 



A comparison of these two wills shows that the maker of the second will was 
the Benjamin named in the first. The " cousins " in New England bore the same 
names as the children of Richard Williams, and even the ;;?^'/7>^ names of his two 
daughters, Elizabeth (giving her residence) and Hannah. Further he speaks of 
Nathaniel, Joseph and Hannah, as deceased. The two children of Richard, by the 
names of Nathaniel and Joseph, died in 1692, and Hannah died in 1693, while the 
will was dated in 1695, and the other children of Richard, viz.: Samuel, Thomas, 
Benjamin and Elizabeth Bird, were then living. 

Soon after the publication of the abstracts of these wills, it was universally 
conceded that Jane, the maker of the first will, was the sister of Richard Williams, 
of Taunton, and the maker of the second will was his nephew, and that we had 
obtained thereby the names of the following members of her father's family, viz.: 
Samuel, Richard, Jane, Elizabeth (in New England), and Mrs. John Hall, of 
Whetenhurst. 

Further, the bequest in the will of Benjamiri, "to the poor of the parish of 
Whetenhurst," " any poor people of my fat/ie?^^ kindred principally recominended^^'' was 
held to indicate that the family must have been in Gloucester county more than one 
generation, and that, therefore, Richard must have been born there. 

Upon the publication of these facts the writer of this Note undertook to prosecute 
the investigation by correspondence, and the results, quite gratifying, will now be 
given. 

In the Consistory Court of the Bishop of Gloucester was found the will of 
Samuel Williams, dated Sept. 26, 1668, proved in 1669. He was apparently a 
clergyman, for he gave to his son Benjamin his " Book of Marters " and '' Perkins 
Works" [undoubtedly the works of Rev. William Perkins, the learned Calvinist 
divine (1558-1602), publi>hed after his death, in three folio volumes], and to his 
son Nathaniel, his " Written Sermons." Pie also mentions his ''brother" Jan.es 
Adams [his wife's brother], his brother Richard Williams, and his sister Elizabeth 
Williams, the Adamses again, and his cousins [nephews and nieces], the four Hall 
children. 

Next was discovered the will of William Williams, of Synwell, a hamlet in 
W ooton-under-Edge [about three miles from Berkeley, easterly on the same road]. 
It was dated Sept. 26, 1618, and proved in the same }ear. It names sons Samuel 
and Richard ; daughters Ann or Anna, Elizabeth and Jane. These are the same 
names as in the other wills, except that it is here found that the name of Mrs. Hall 
was Ann. 



258 Maine Historical and Ge7iealogical Recorder. 



The witnesses Mere William Martin, Robert Trotman and Francis Wright, the 
two former of whom were named as overseers. These are well-known names of 
families of high standing. 

The executor was Richard Tyndall [or Tyndale] of North Nibley, a relative of 
William, the translator of the Bible, who suffered martyrdom in Flanders. 

An examination of the register of the parish of " St, Mary the Virgin," in 
Wooton-under-Edge, in Gloucestershire, brought to light the baptisms of the 
following children of William Williams: 
"An," daughter, Dec. 2, 1599. 
Richard, son, Jan. 28, 1606. 
Jane, daughter, March 19, 1608, 

There is also the record of the burial of William Williams, Sept. 29, 1618. and of 
Elizabeth Williams. Nov. 19, 1630. It was at first supposed that this Elizabeth 
might have been the mother of Richard ; but as no wife is mentioned in the will 
of William, this is scarcely probable. Susanna Williams was buried Jan. 11, 1610, 
and she may have been the wife of William. It is hoped that further investigations, 
now being prosecuted, will lead to the discovery of the mother's name. 

The records show that Samuel Williains married Alice Knight, a widow, in 1637; 
that their son Samuel was baptized in 1638, t!ieir daughter Hannah in 1040 (died 
in 1645), and their son Nathaniel in 1645 ' ^'^^^^ ^^^ mother died in 1661, and the 
father in 1669. Samuel, Jr., died young, and the record of Benjamin's baptism has 
not yet been found. 

But these more recent discoveries have not been confined to the family of 
Richard Williams. "The Gloucestershire wife," doubted by Savage, has been 
established. It was known that the wife of Richard was Frances Dighton, 
sister of Katharine, the wife of Gov. Thomas Dudley, but the disco\ery of their 
family had baffled the efforts of all investigators. Early in 1889 the record was 
discovered which shows ihat on "February 11, 1632, Richard Williams was 
married to Frances Deichion, of Gloucester, in the Parish of Witcombe Magna," 
situated about five miles east of that city. 

llie will of John Deighton, dated Jan. 31, 1639, pi'o^'ed May 21, 1640, mentions 
his eldest son, John, his eldest daughter, Jane, his daughter P>ances Williams, 
his daugliter Katharine Maighburne (at that dale wife or widow of Samuel 
Haighburne) and his daughter Damaris, who was made residuary legatee and 
executor. It is to be noted that these names have all been used among the 
descendants of Richard Williams to the present day. 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 259 

Among the " Inscriptions in St. Nicholas church," Gloucester, Big-lands, is 
the following : 

" Here lie interred the bodies of John Deighton, of this city, gent., and Jane, his 
wife, daughter to Edward Bassett, of Uley, by whom he had issue, three sons and 
four daughters. He spent all his time in the study of chirurgery, and attained to 
great knowledge therein. He died i6 May, i6[4o], and she the 23 April, 1631." 

The records of the same church show the christenincj of Frances and Katharine, 
daughters of John Dighton : 

Frances, bap. March i, 161 1. 
Katharine, bap. Jan. 16, 1614. 

The Dudley genealogy has been published, in part at least, in magnificent style, 
but at the time nothing more was known concerning Katharine's parentage than 
that her father's name was Dighton. 

The accounts of Katharine make her, when she married Gov. Dudley (April 14, 
1644), the widow of Samuel Hackbur?ie. The name in some records is Haigh- 
biirne\ in her father's will it is Haybur7ie. The pronunciation of Haighbnme is not 
known. The name " Haigh," at the present time is variously pronounced — Hay, 
Hague, Hake, etc. The transformation of " Haighburne " to " Hackburne," 
therefore, is not surprising. 

While the writer has been seeking to discover the parentage of Richard and 
Frances [Dighton] Williams, their descendants to the fifth generation have been 
diligently sought by one of their number,* and a compilation of more than twelve 
hmidred names in the male and female lines, has already been made, and the 
author expects to be able to complete it at an early day. It is a source of satisfac- 
tion to the writer to have been able to procure for him important information 
relating to the history of the family before they came to this country. 

Without intending to forestall the interest attaching to so valuable a work, the 
descent of the writer of this Note from Richard Williams, through Benjamin, his 
youngest son, is here given.

I. Richard Williams' (the son of William) was born in Wooton-under-Edge, 
Gloucestershire, England; was baptized January 28, 1606 [not in 1599, according

He married Frances Dighton, daughter of John and Jane [Bassett] Dighton, born 
in Gloucester, England. She was baptized March 11, 161 1. She died at Taunton,

(68) Daniel Moulton^ Captain (Jonathan^ Robert'^ William^), 
b. in Hampton, N. H., 1731. His father died when he was four 
years old, and he was apprenticed to a man who treated him 
harshly. About 1745, at the age of fourteen, he ran away and 
went to the new settlements in Maine, first to Saco, and then to 
Scarborough, where he settled on the east side of Nonsuch river, 
near " Rocky Hill," opposite what is now known as the Daniel 
Carter place. He was a blacksmith, and became the owner of 
large tracts of land, holding most of what is now^ Scarborough 
Corner School District, and, it is said, about two miles of Nonsuch 
meadows. He had a large square house and several large barns. 
He gave each of his children a farm with large square house. In 
later years he paid a considerable sum in settlement for "his time" 
to the man to whom he had been apprenticed. He is mentioned in 
Southgate's History of Scarborough, as one of the prominent men 
in the town after its second settlement. He was an especial 
favorite of Charles Pine, the hunter and Indian fighter, whose 
grand daughter he married, and Pine attempted by will to entail a 
tract of land upon Daniel and his issue. He m. ist, April 25, 
1750, Grace, dau. of John Reynolds'^ and Grace Pine. Daniel and

NEW MARBLEHEAD, NOW WINDHAM, MAINE. 



REV. G. M. BODGE, EAST BOSTON, MASS.

HE scene of the fight was on lot No. 21, of the first 
division of one-hundred-acre lots. To those not familiar 
with the method of drawing the lots, the locality will be 
better understood by a word of explanation. 

No. I of this division was drawn upon the head of the home-lots, 
running back on the line of the "School-lot" to the Presumpscot 
river, and northwesterly on the main road a hundred rods to the 
cross road running to " Horsebeef Falls." The following lots up to 
nine, of varying width (according as the course of the river changed 
their length), were drawn, the ninth being bounded by Pleasant 
river on the northwest. The next eight lots were drawn on the 
opposite side of the main road. No. 17 being drawn upon the head 
of the home lots, which, it will be remembered, were ten rods 
wide and one mile long, with the main road running through at 
half a mile from the river. 

At the easterly end of these home lots and half a mile from the 
main road was the second road, running parallel with the former as 
laid out, beginning at Falmouth line and running on the home lots 
and the back of the above-named eight hundred-acre lots to Pleasant 
river. In continuing this division the surveyors passed down to the 
Falmouth line, as it was then supposed to run, and drew No. 18 
upon the back of the lower home lots, being 194 rods wide to make 
up for its triangular form, caused by the direction of the Falmouth 
line. Nos. 19 and 20 were 92 1-2 rods wide, so that No. 21 ran 
upon the back of home lots 23 to 32. It was drawn to the original 
right of James Skinner; owned by Ezra Brown at the time of his 



Maine Historical a7id Ge7iealo£'ical Recorder. 271 

death, and now belongs to the estate of the late John F. Anderson, 
Esq. The place is now open pasture land; the brook has nearly 
disappeared, and only tradition has preserved the evidence of the 
exact locality, known to very few now living, but familiar fifty years 
years ago to many of the old people who had visited the spot and 
stood by the very tree under which the Indian chief fell. 

After the war was over and intercourse was resumed with the 
Indians, it was ascertained that this attacking party was a portion 
of the local tribe, who called themselves (as we learn from the 
ancient document given above) " Pesumscots," and whose chief (as 
we learn from the same document) called himself Polin. The 
Indians told the settlers that two other Indians besides Polin were 
killed in the fray. And there is a tradition that they also told 
them that they carried the chief many miles back into the woods, 
and uprooting a young tree beside a river, and bending it backward 
they hollowed a grave directly underneath, and then springing the 
sapling back to place, replanted its roots and left it to grow, as a 
safe burial place and fitting monument to the chief. The poet 
Whittier's beautiful poem, "The Funeral Tree of the Sokokis," was 
founded upon this old tradition. When some forty years ago exca- 
vations were made for building the lock upon Songo river, a human 
skeleton was uneaathed directly under a large tree, and the circum- 
stance revived the old tradition, and many supposed that the bones 
were those of the old chief " Poland," as our ancestors called him. 
But the skeleton was said to have been that of a very large man, 
while the tradition from those who knew Chief Polin, was that he 
was very small in stature for an Indian. In a subsequent chapter 
upon "Ancient Land-marks and Relics," further reference will be 
made to this fight with the Indians. 

Ezra Brown, who was killed, moved into the town sometime

before April, 1750, and settled upon home lot No. 59, with wife 
Mary and son William, and on April 3, 1750, had son Ezra born, 
and before his death Amos and Lydia; and through these children 
and their descendants the name has been made honorable in the 
succeeding generations. Widow Mary Brown, in 1759, married 
Eliezer Chase, and had another family, but removed in a few years 
to the new town of Buckfield. 

Ephraim Winship, who was wounded in this fight, was born in 
Lexington, Mass., May i, 1709, and there married Mehitabel Cutter, 
Aug. 28, 1735. They had six children between 1736 and 1747. 
He was a shoemaker by trade, and settled with the above family in 
New Marblehead, upon home lot No. 5, in 1750. His wife Mehitabel 
died April 18, 1753, aged 44 years. Mr. Winship's wounds were so 
severe that his recovery seems wonderful; for besides the bullet 
shot in the arm, another bullet destroyed an eye, and, as he 
possessed a "double crown," the Indians took two scalps from his 
head, leaving a narrow strip of scalp from the back of his head to 
the front. In this work they were interrupted by the guards, and 
one of the savages gave him a hasty, cruel blow with a tomahawk 
upon the head and left him for dead. He recovered however, and 
although badly hacked and shot, and having but one eye and less 
than one-fourth of his original scalp, he married again, Oct. 13, 1759, 
Mrs. Elizabeth (Roberts) Mathews, widow of Samuel. She had a 
family of four children by her first husband to join with his six; 
and then they together had four more, the last being born Dec, 
1 766, some six months after the father's death, which occurred 
June 4, 1766. His widow Elizabeth in 1768 married Amos Brown 
as her their husband, and by him had several children. 

The above account is all that I have been able to glean from 
different sources concerning the fight with the Indians. Upon the

death of Polin the Pesumscots seem to have broken up, and 
probably they passed to the eastward and became a part of some of 
those tribes which still kept up the fight for nearly two years. 
There is some evidence that they went to the northwest, and with 
a few scattered bands from other broken tribes, led out a precarious 
existence until the last few families dwindled away and disappeared. 
This was the last hostile visit of the enemy to our townspeople, 
although the form of guarding was kept up for a year or two 
afterwards. 

The situation a year later is shown in the following petition, 
which is preserved in the Massachusetts archives, where it has lain 
unnoticed for a hundred and fifty years. 

PETITION OF THE INHABITANTS OF NEW MARBLEHEAD. 

To his Honour Spencer Phips Esq"" Lieutenant Governor & Com- 
mander in Chief: & To the Honourable Counsel & House of 
Representatives now sitting at Boston April 4, 1757. 

The patision of the Inhabitants of a place called New Marblehead 
humbly sheweth that for this fourteen or fifteen years past we have 
been Confined to a garrison by reson of the Worr: & are therebye 
brought into such difaculties that we can by no means subsist aney 
longer: without the help of the Government but must unavoidably 
quit the settlement, go into the war and leve our wives & Children 
to the Charity of the Province for we have for this several years 
past, the greatest part of us raised but little or no Corn, many 
fields of Several acors all destroyed by y^ wild varmonds that there 

was not a single in the whole feld: & if there was aney left 

standing in aney the early frost has cut it short So that it would 
not fat a pig & therefor obliegd to by our bread corn where we 
could git it on credit & now we are calld on for pay and we have 
nothing to pay and our Creditors are afraid to give us aney further 
Credit not noing but we may be destroyed by the Enemy & they 
loose what we have had allready & this February was twelve months 
past we had a young man taken by the Indians and the next May

following they gave us another visit & erected there wigwams but 

about a mile from our fields and there waited for an opartunity to 

due us a mischief which they efected by w^aylaying the Rhoad where 

one of our people was going to his field fird on him and kild him 

and shot another man that was with him shot out one of his eyes 

and through his arm & scalpt him who is yet alive but won of our 

people that was with them fired on the Indians and put them into 

such a surprise that they drawd of in such a hurry as to leve all 

ther blankits amunission caps knives bever & every thing they 

brou2:ht with them which we recovered from them which makes us 

• 1 • 
think we have all the reson emagenable to expect them agam this 

Sprig in order to recover ther los & the garrison which the 

Province built for us in the first of the wor is so very much out of 

repare that there is nobody dars to ventor there lives in it aney 

longer without it is repaired: & having no minister for this foure 

years past: & in no Surcomstances to Settle another which rendors 

our case so very discouraging that we must unavoidably move of if 

we can have no helpe which we should be very loath to due if we 

might be alowd pay and Subsistence to gard ourselves without aney 

other gards as has bin on our backs for two years past for we find 

by Experance that a gard or scout so far back from us dus not 

answer to prevent the enemys way laying our feilds for we find that 

[it] is there way to lay round our fields & kill or take us as we go 

about our work: So humbly beg the Honourable Court to take our 

destrest Sircumstances under your wise Concidderation & due for 

us as in your wise Concidderation you may think best & your 

Patissioners shall ever pray

The muster-roll given below shows the way in which the military 

was organized at New Marblehead during these years. It is given 

here in somewhat different form from what it appears in the ancient 

paper preserved in the Archives, as it would be difficult to give the 

form of the old Provincial pay roll upon any less than a quarto page. 

A Muster Roll of ten Garrison Soldiers allowed at New Marblehead in his 

Majesty's Service under the Command of Thomas Chute, Sargeant, Nov. 2d, 1757. 

Divided among ye inhabitants 

Thomas Chute, Sergeant. 

John Bodge Samuel Webb 

Curtis Chute Ephi-aim Winship 

John Meaberry John Manchester 

Samuel Matthews Joseph Starling 
WiUiam Maxfield 

The above were the ten with whom the Province kept account, 
but there were twenty-eight in all who drew equal shares of the 
whole sum applied by the Province in guarding at New Marblehead. 

The other townsmen who shared with these ten were: 

Thomas Meaberry William Elder Hugh Craigue 

John Farrow Nathaniel Evans Amos Brown 

Micah Walker Eleazer Chase Robert Muckford 

Richard Meaberry William Meaberry John Stevens 

Stephen Manchester Abraham Anderson William Bolton 

Zerubbabel Honeywell Caleb Graffam Robert Hill 

The term of service here reckoned, extended from April 8 to 
October 31, 1757, a period of twenty-nine weeks and four days, as 
they allowed it. 

Thomas Chute as sergeant, and continually employed in keeping 
accounts and detailing the daily guards, was allowed ^i i, i s., 10 d. 
While every other able-bodied man in the settlement was held to 
guard duty, and allowed his proportional part of the Province 
money. This amounted to £2, 19s., i 1-4 d. Portions of Mr. 
Chute's old "Guarding Accounts" are still preserved in a manu- 
script book in possession of the Maine Historical Society.

FLITNER FAMILY, 



COMPILED BY MRS. S. E. FLITNER, BOSTON, MASS. 




^' was a Dative of Germany. His 
name was originally Flieclner,^ 



as shown by his diploma. 



{Translation of Diploma. ^ 

KNOW ALL MEN that we the Commissioners of the Medical College of this 
place, here assembled in committee, had brought before us by the much honored 
and experienced Sir John Henry Patzen (examined and qualified physician and 
surgeon of Tann) Zacharias Nicolous Fliedner, who studied with him for three 
years, and during that time was intelligent, industrious, honest and upright ; fulfill- 
ing the requirements imposed by us, for his future promotion. For this reason all 
persons and more especially our examined and incorporated profession, when wish- 
ing a consultation can ask service of the above named Zacharias Nicolous Fliedner, 
which we under the same circumstance will reciprocate. We pray that without this 
certificate, and the birth letter that none will be taken. 

*Fac simile of his autograph taken from a receipt dated July i8, 17S3. 

(a) We have been unable to establish a family connection with those bearing the name in Ger- 
many. A parson, G. Jliedner, is now pastor of a church at Kaisersworth, a little town on the 
Rhine. His grandfather, born 1764, in Oppenheim, was a minister in Eppstein, a small village on 
the frontier of Hesse and Nassan. His great-grandfather was also a preacher of the Gospel at 
Oppenheim. The original home of this family was in Hessen, near Hanan. 

Theodore Fliedner,\ a philanthropist and restorer of the office of deaconess to the Protestant 
church of Germany, was born Jan. 21, iSoo. at Eppstein, where his father was parish clergyman. 
He studied at the universities of Giessen and Gottingen, and at the theological seminary of Her- 
born. In 1855 received the degree of doctor of theology at the university at Bonn. He preached 
at Kaisersworth, where in 1833 ^^ opened a refuge for discharged female convicts, and in 1836 began 
the first deaconess home and hospital. He died Oct. 4, 1864, having traveled over a large part of 
Europe, America, and the East, leaving behind him over 100 stations, attended by 430 deaconesses.

29th 1743. 

Johann Joachim Cramer 

[Seal] Christoph. Peter Decker 

Surgeon and 

present chief Elder. 

That he changed it soon after coming to this country is inferred 
from the following record of his marriage: — " Zacheus Fhtner to 
Lucy Colburn ^ Nov. 5, 1765," by James Howard Esq., magistrate 
of Auo-usta, Me. At the conclusion of his medical studies at 
Goiha, April 29, 1743, tradition says he traveled over parts of 
Europe before joining the Prussian army, to w^hich he was attached 
as surgeon several years previous to coming to America. He ar- 
rived in Boston about 1764. Through the influence of Judge 
North he w^as induced to go to the Kennebec region, where he 
located at Gardinerston, on the west side of the river, being that 
part of the plantation now Gardiner. 

He was the first settled physician in that section of Maine. He 
bought five acres o[ land of Dr. Sylvester Gardiner, Sept. 20, 1765,"^ 
" on condition that he should build a house and dwell on the land 
seven years." It was bounded "at Kennebec River at East end of 

(c) I.ucy Colburn was ihe daughter of Jeremiah ^ and Sarah Colburn. He was a lineal descendant 
in the fourth generati(jn from '' Edivard Colhortie who came in the ' Defense' from London July 6, 
1635, aged 17," and settled first in Ipswich and later in Dracut, Mass , where he died Feb. 17, 1700 (?) 
Ezra- Colhiirn, son of Edward, married Hannah, daughter of Samuel Varnum of Dracut. Ezra - 
Colburn liad Ezra;' who married Lucy, daughter of I'hilip Nelson of Rowley, Mass., who was grad- 
uated from Harvard College 1654. They were the parents of the above Jcrcniiah ^ who came from 
Danstal)]e. Mass., and settled on the east bank of the Kennebec, now Pittston. He bought 800 
acres of land July 5, 1763. of Samuel Fowle of Woburn and Iknjamin Jaquith of Wilmington, 
Mass.. belonging to lot No. 15 (Kennebec Purchase), 80 poles on the river and 5 miles long. He 
sold, May 6, 1765, to his son RitcJh-ir' Colbitiii. 107 acres, being a part of the above 800. On this 
site Reuben Colbuin built the homestead now standing, where he lived and reared a large family. 
He died Scj^t. 16, 1818. His wife h^lizabeth (Lewis) died Aug. 5, 1821. 

* Dr. I'^litner sold the above five acres to Henry Smith, Sept. 27, 1773. lancoln Co. records,

South line of No. 17; (Kennebec Purchase) from thence running 
W. S. W. 67 poles to a road; thence South 17 degrees East on 
said road 12 poles; thence E. N. E. to Kennebec River.* His 
house was about where William Bradstreet's dwelling now stands. 

He moved his family to Lake Maranocook, where they lived dur- 
ing the time of the Revolution, Dr. Flitner serving as surgeon in 
that war several years. 

In 1779 was surgeon in Col. McCobb's regiment of militia in 
Gen. Lovell's Brigade.! 

He built a house on the east side of Nahumkeag Pond, where he 
passed his remaining years. The land was bounded "South line of 
Seth Soper's at a Stone and at East end of Reuben Colburn's land 
where he dwells, running E. S. E. 166 poles; thence S. S. W. 80 
poles, then to run W. N. W. on the Northerly line of the late Par- 
son Weld's land to the Pond ; from thence across said Pond to the 
aforesaid Reuben Colburn's land South line; from thence across to 
first mentioned Stone,^ — 166 poles long and 80 poles wide." He 
sold the above land to his son Joseph, Oct. 8, 1799. Dr. Flitner 
died about 1804. He was nearly blind during the latter part of his 
life. His wife lived to be aged, but died before he did. They were 
interred in the old churchyard near Major Colburn's, where nearly 
all of Pittston's early settlers were laid to rest. Children :

1850, aged 69 years. She was a lineal descendant in the fifth gen- 
eration from SamueP Oakman of Scarborough, who settled there as 
early as 1657, through Tobias" of Scarborough and Marshfield, Ed- 
ward^ of Marshfield and Samuel^ of Marshfield and Pittston. In 
the female line she descended from Richard Warren, Thomas Rog- 
ers and Edward Doty, who came in the Mayflower 1620. \ Francis 
Flitner bought his place, comprising 143 acres, extending to Na- 
humkeag Pond, of Benjamin Shaw, May 13, 1803.! This land was 
next north of Thomas Agry's, being a part of No. 15 (Kennebec 
Purchase), formerly owned by Rev. Habijah Weld of Attleborough, 
Mass. On the site near the river he built his home, where he 
passed his life after marriage, and reared a large family. The 
homestead was sold July, 1884, by Flitner heirs, to the Independ- 
ent Ice Company of Washington, D. C. The house was renovated, 
a cupola and piazza added, and is now occupied by Chas. W. 
Church. Edward Lawrence owned land adjoining north, now in 
possession of liis heirs. He was in partnership in the mill busi- 
ness with Francis Flitner, they owning a sawmill and gristmill at 
Agry's Point. Before the war of 181 2 he built vessels on the bank 
of the river near his home, but tlie embargo act proved disastrous 
to his shipping interests, and like many others he lost nearly all his

NOTES, QUERIES, Etc. 



Newmeadows River Canal. — By an act of 
the Genera] Court passed in June, 1791, nine 
persons were incorporated and authorized to 
open this canal. John Peterson, Esq., is chosen 
as principal agent in conducting the business. 
The length of the canal is six hundred rods. 
It is sunk about three feet below high water 
mark, and is about seven feet wide. It is pro" 
posed to widen it to about eighteen feet in the 
whole, and that it should be sunk two feet 
deeper. This will be a water communication 
with the Kennebec and Androscoggin rivers. — 
Eastern Herald, Oct, 22, 1792. 

Six Living Generations. — Dr. R. B. Root, 
of Georgetown, Mass., writes as follows to the 
Boston Medical atid Surgical Journal: — ''Last 
May I attended Mrs, Newall Rogers of By- 
field, with her first child. I was then informed, 
and I have since taken the pains to verify the 
statement then made, that this baby is the sixth 
living generation^ with ages as follows : — great- 
great-great-grandmother, 95 years; great-great- 
grandmother. 74 years; great-grandfather, 59 
years, 8 mos.; grandfather, 39 years, 4 mos. ; 
mother. 16 years, 2 months; child, 11 months. —

I wish information in a general way concern- 
ing those families who emigrated from Eastern 
Connecticut and Rhode Island in 1760, Also of 
Stephen Harrington, b. June 13, 1748, whose 
mother's name was Elizabeth, b. 17 14, or possi- 
bly 1724; had a sister Sarah, who m. Col. Jona- 
than Sherman, in 1768; sister Mary, m, Amos 
Sheffield, in 1761 (he was b. 1733, i" Newport, 
R. I.); another sister, Zerviah, m. Jeremiah 
Northup, in Rhode Island. All these were 
among the early settlers of Nova Scotia. I al- 
so want information of the Martin family; five 
brothers went from Rhode Island, viz.: Perez, 
Chandler, Peter, Brotherton, and one other, 
name unknown; all went to Nova Scotia.

Plumb. — John, was one of the original set- 
tlers in Withersfield, 1635. Where did he come 
from to America; where land, and who was 
his wife, and what of his children ? He died at 
Branford, Conn., 1648. 

Blackman. — John, m. Mary Pond, their first 
child b. in Dorchester, Mass., Oct. 5, 1656; I

birth, but do not know; would like any informa-

Bradbury Memorial. — Fifty-five pages of 
this work are devoted to an account of the fam- 
ily in England, in which it is traced from Robert 
Bradbury of Ollersett in Derbyshire early in the 
fifteenth century, to Thomas who came to 
New England prior to 1634. This Thomas was 
the eighth in descent from the above-named 
Robert, and the Bradbury Memorial includes 
nine generations from Thomas, so that persons 
bearing the Bradbury name, and mentioned in 
this volume, are able to trace their descent 
through sixteen generations. The Memorial in- 
cludes an account of nearly two thousand per- 
sons who have borne the name of Bradbury, and 
while it is far from complete, yet all who receive 
this circular are mentioned in the volume. It is 



printed on heavy calendered paper of the best 
quality, and contains 320 large octavo pages. It 
has brief biographical sketches of many of the 
name who have more or less distinguished them- 
selves, and is illustrated by the Bradbury Coat 
of Arms, three views of Wicken Bonant, Eng- 
land, from whence Thomas Bradbury came, in- 
cluding the house in which he was born, and the 
church in which he was baptized, and portraits 
of Hon. James W. Bradbury of Augusta, Hon. 
Bion Bradbury late of Portland, the late John 
Merrill Bradbury of Ipswich, Mass., and several 
others. Only three hundred copies of the book 
are printed, and persons will be supplied in the 
order of their application until all are disposed 
of. It is bound in extra cloth, gilt edges, and 
sent postage prepaid for five dollars. 

Address, Dr. W. B. Lapham, 

14 Elm Street, Augusta, Me. 



What Befell Stephen Williams in His 
Captivity. — This account of Stephen Williams' 
captivity is not a diary of events recorded day 
by day, but bears evidence of having been writ- 
ten by the captive boy after his return, and be- 
fore 1709. The original manuscript was given 
to the Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association, 
who published it; edited by George Sheldon. 
Stephen was the son of Rev. John Williams, 
and was taken prisoner Feb. 29, 1703-4. He 
was born at Deerfield, Conn., May 14, 1693; 
graduated at Harvard. 1713; settled minister of 
Longmeadow, 1716; was chaplain under Sir 
Wm. Pepperrell in the Louisburg expedition in 
1746, and the Canada land campaign of 1755, 
under Sir Wm. Johnson, and 1756, under Gen. 
Winslow. He died at Longmeadow, June 10, 
1782, aged 89. Georj^e Sheldon, Deerfield, Ct.

W. H. Dim- 
in the direc-

The New Brunswick Historical Society. 
On the 9th of September, 1874, J. W. Law- 
rence, G. Murdock, W. R. M. Burtis, R. 
W. Crookshank, T. W. Lee, W. P. Dole, 
A. A. Stockton, G. W. Hay,

tors' room of the Mechanics' 
the purpose of taking into consideration the ad- 
visability of forming an Historical Society. Mr. 
Lawrence, who for mar.y years had been collect- 
ing material bearing on the early history and 
settlement of the province, was at a subsequent 

meeting, Nov. 25, made president of the Society 
then duly organized, with A. A. Stockton, vice- 
president, and W. F^. Dole, Sec. The Society 
is on a sound basis, and progressing finely. It 
published in 1887, a souvenir on the occasion of 
the centennial celebration of the province, show- 
ing the collections of the Society, its members, 
etc., with addresses, poems, portraits and vari- 
ous other matters of historical interest in the 
province. Jonas Howe, Cor. Sec. 

Society of Sons of the Revolution. In- 
corporated under the laws of the State of New 
York, May 3, 1884. Whereas it has become 
evident from the decline of proper celebration of 
such national holidays as the Fourth of July, 
Washington's birthday, and the like, that popu- 
lar interest in the events and men of the war of 
the revolution appears to be falling off ; there- 
fore this institution has been formed in the 
United States to perpetuate the memory of the 
men who by their acts and council achieved our 
independence, to promote the proper celebra- 
tion of the anniversaries which commemorate 
this event, to collect and preserve all records 
and documents which can be secured pertaining 
to that war, to inspire our descendants with the 
patriotic spirit of their forefathers, and to incul- 
cate, in the conuiiunity in general, sentiments of 
national respect for the principles for which the 
patriots of the revolution contended, this pre- 
amble is published in full, with constitution, by- 
laws, list of officers, members, etc. Fred'k S.

SOUTHWESTERN TEXAS, 

THE 

San Antonio, the Invalid's Paradise. 
The iVlost Desirable Suburb in San Antonio for a Home. 

Location and Scenery. — Lake View is situated two miles west from the center of, and at an elevation of 
about one hundred feet above, the city of »San Antonio. All the principal streets running west lead directly to 
the property. Its commanding elevation furnishes scenic advantages unsurpassed in Southwest Texas. 

Healthfulness. — Probably there is no part of America that offers more attractions to persons suffering 
from throat or pulmonary troubles, including asthma, also kidney and rheumatic affections, than Southwest 
Texas, and of Southwest Texas there is no spot more healthy than Saii Antonio and its suburbs; The winter 
speaks, not only from personal experience, but from the standpoint of a physician who has given this matter a 
great deal of careful study, tind who knows his statements are accurate. 

Lake View offers great inducements at the present time as a winter resort, for the following reasons: The 
suburb is for strictly first-class residence property; the elevation is high and commanding; the atmosphere is 
free from all impurities, is not malarious, and is rich in ozone; the tempei'ature is delightful; in fact, nature 
and art have combined to make Lake View a most charming suburban home. 

As AN Investment it offers special advaritages; the prices of the property are very low, with the prospect of 
an early and rapid rise. The New England Land Company offers this property in single house lots, blocks, or 
acreage property. 

A cordial invitation is extended to all persons who visit San Antonio to call upon the General Manager at the 
office of the Company, where any information pertaining to this part of our country will be cheerfully furnished. 
For further particulars, address, 

William P. Watson, No. 9 East Houston Street, San Antonio, Texas. 

PORTLI^HD, TEXAiS, 

Is the new town situated upon the cliffs which rise to a height of from thirty to 
forty feet above the water on the north shore of the bay of Corpus Christi. 
The future of Portland is assured for the following reasons : The San Antonio & 
Aransas Pass road now runs directly through the land, and a railroad station is 
established at Portland. It is so situated that all the future railroads from Central 
and Southern Texas or Mexico, to reach the Aransas Pass Harbor, will run 
through the property. 

It is in near proximity to both Aransas Pass Harbor and the New Ship Canal which is now being 
built through Mustang Island by Col. E. H. Ropes of Corpus Christi. Aransas Pass Harbor will 
soon become one of the finest upon our coast, and as soon as the ship canal and Aransas Harbor 
is finished, Corpus Christi Bay will become the scene of great activity. The most rapid growth will 
follow which has ever been known in our country. Portland is famous for its delicious oysters and 
other sea foods. It is famous for its health. Its death rate is less than that of the most famous 
health resorts in the world. This is due to its situation on a noble bluff facing the salt water, swept 
by the salt sea breezes fresh from the Gulf of Mexico. The breezes make it cooler in summer than any 
locality in Texas. These breezes also make it warmer in winter than any locality in Texas. The 
lowest thermomeier, 1888- 1889. was only 40^^. It had only only one freezing spell in the winter of 
1889 and i8go. Farms here will grow anything: tobacco, sugar, cotton, figs, grapes. A large vine- 
yard in the neighborhood is valued at $1,000 an acre. They grow peaches. Garden truck is 
shipped from these lands every month in the year. The rich, dark soil needs no fertilizing. Rain- 
fall right here is heavier than in the Middle or New England States. 

A party of New England gentlemen have purchased twelve hundred and eighty acres of land in 
Portland, which has one mile frontage upon the bluff, and extends back from the shore two miles. 
These gentlemen are about forming a syndicate in New England, and propose to offer the land at 
an extremely low figure, and as soon as the syndicate is formed a company will be incorporated. 
This land has doubled in value since it was purchased, and within three months will be again worth 
double its present value. This is one of the choicest investments which has ever been offered to the 

people of New England. William P. Watson, San AntoniOj Texas.

Vol. VI. 1889. No. 2. 

CYRUS WOODMAN.* 

GOOD man has gone from among us; we cannot see him 
more, hear his kindly voice, nor grasp his genial hand ; yet 
Cyrus Woodman will ever live in the memory of those who 
knew him best. Many a cheering word, many a timely act is deeply 
engraved on sorrowing hearts that never can forget their benefactor. 
He graduated at Bowdoin College in 1836, entered Harvard Law 
School in October, 1838, was admitted to the bar in Boston in July, 
1839, and left soon after for Illinois as an agent for the Boston and 
Western Land Company. 

Mr. Woodman was one of the pioneers of the West, going there 
in early life ; no one ever worked harder than he, spending days 
together in the wilderness with only his compass for a guide. 

He remained with this company till 1843, when it dissolved and 
he entered into partnership with Hon. C. C. Washburn of Mineral 
Point, Wisconsin, who was afterward a representative to congress 
from that state, a major-general in the late civil war, and later, 
Governor of Wisconsin. This partnership continued happily till 
dissolved by mutual consent in 1855. 

*This paper was read by S. M. Watson before the Maine G,enealogical Society of whicli Mr. 
Woodman was an honorary member. 



318 Maine Historical a7id Genealogical Recorder. 

Mr. Woodman inherited the pecuKar traits of his family, appear- 
ing sometimes stern and blunt to those who did not know him, 
while beneath the exterior beat a kind and tender heart. Although 
much of his life was spent away from his native town and childhood 
home and friends, yet none were ever forgotten or shunned for 
foolish pride ; all were alike dear and sacred to him. His kindred 
and townsmen were especially remembered, but he found friends 
everywhere. 

He entertained a love and goodwill toward all whom he knew, 
and perhaps it was this spirit which prompted him to devote much 
time and money in preparing and publishing the genealogy of the 
name he bore, and histories of men and places he admired, that 
they might not be forever lost in obscurity. He was a member of 
several societies for the collection and preservation of historical and 
genealogical matters interesting the general public, and offered 
assistance at various times to procure the records of any towns in 
this state which could be obtained and copied, and place them 
where they would be securely preserved and readily accessible to 
people desiring such information as they might furnish. 

To express the character and peculiarities of our brother, I can- 
not do better than quote the communication from one of his college 
classmates, the Rev. Cyrus Hamlin, to the Bowdoin Orient, soon 
after his death. 

One of the alumni of Bowdoin College has passed away whom his brother-alumni 
and all friends of the college will sorely miss. Cyrus Woodman of Buxton, of the 
class of '36, was a student and man whom no one would forget after even the most 
casual acquaintance. There were frankness, goodness, simplicity, perfect indepen- 
dence, straightforwardness, and cordial friendliness, which made you remember him 
as one you would like to meet again. 

For the study of law, to which he first gave himself, he seemed naturally fitted, 
not to be a " Philadelphia lawyer," but one who would easily discern the right and 
boldly and clearly maintain it without resort to any questionable measures. 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 319 

The circumstances and interests of life rather led him to the management of land 
and railroad enterprises, in which he had eminent success. His business habits 
were exact, his judgment excellent. There were no loose ends, no ragged edges, 
no dirty corners in his affairs. Any one could see his character in his letters. 

The handwriting was bold, clear, uniform, and as easy to read as the best printed 
page. What he had to say was said in fitting words, tersely, compactly, with no 
obscurity or possibility of it. Having said just what he wanted to say, his note, 
letter, or argument closed with no labored peroration. 

He was a man to be trusted with your interests fully. You would be sure to be 
kept informed of the exact state of things without gloss or exaggeration. But there 
was another side to Mr. Woodman's character more difficult of exact delineation, if 
not of comprehension. He was, like a great many others, a kind-hearted, generous 
man. But he had his own peculiar way of doing a favor. He had a singular insight 
into the right time and best way, which would sometimes suggest the idea that spirits 
unseen had been mediums of communication. I will give an illustration, although 
it is personal. He once sent me a check, giving as a reason an old favor which I 
had done him and which -he said had not been suitably recognized by him. The 
reason was entirely out of place, for it had been covered deep by greater favors. 
But the check fell into the exact place where it was wanted and filled it. The mem- 
ory of it will last with others after I have passed away. There was no possibility 
of his knowing anything of the existing exigency. You might say it was all chance, 
and if only one such happy guess had occurred, you would be justified in saying so. 
But I could give other cases quite as singular. Such things happen only with those 
who watch for occasions and who have a faculty of observation and judgment, so 
that it becomes a sort of natural instinct to do the right thing at the right time. I 
was not of his class, nor of his college society. I was orthodox, he unitarian, but 
we always met cordially as friends, whether because we were alike or unlike I do 
not know and do not care. None of my Bowdoin friends have done me such 
repeated favors as he. I shall always keep upon my desk a memento inscribed, 

Cyrus Woodman 

TO 

Cyrus Hamlin. 

Our late brother was descended from Edward Woodman and his 
wife Joanna, who came from England, and probably from the town 
of Corsham, a village in Wiltshire about eleven miles from Christian 



320 Maine Historical and Gejiealogical Recorder, 

Malford in 1635, and settled in Newbury, Massachusetts. Of the 
ninety-one grantees who settled Newbury, fifteen were entitled to 
the appellation of Mr., and one of these was Edward Woodman. 

He was a man of influence, decision and energy; a deputy to the 
General Court in 1636-7-9 and '43; one of three commissioners to 
end small causes in Newbury in 1638-41-5 and 6; one of the first 
selectmen of Newbury, having been elected in 1636, and his name 
heads the list as we find it. Therefore for many years he was one 
of the leading men in towm. 

He and his wife Joanna were living in February, 1688; she was 
then 74. He died before 1694, his age not known to the writer. 

Edward and Joanna had seven children, one of whom was Joshua^ 
and as his gravestone tells us, "was the first man child born in 
Newbury." He married Elizabeth, daughter of Capt. John Stevens, 
one of the first settlers of Andover. Joshua had ten children, one 
of whom was Benjamin^ born 1683; married in 171 1, Elizabeth, 
daughter of William Longfellow and wife Anne Sewall, a sister of 
Judge Samuel Sewall. William Longfellow was born in Hamp- 
shire, England, and was the only one of that name who came to 
America. He was a man of talent and education, but was not so 
much of a Puritan as some others, says the biographer. 

Benjamin Woodman had nine children, one of whom was Joseph^ 
born in 171 5, married in 1739, Catharine, daughter of Isaac and 
Mary (Smith) of Reading. Joseph Woodman removed to Narra- 
ganset No. i (now Buxton, Me.) about 1740, was there and at Bid- 
deford until 1750, when he became a permanent settler in Buxton, 
where he erected and owned a mill and managed a lumber business 
for many years, and was one of the most enterprising and leading 
business men of the town. 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 321 

He was more than once married, and had nine children, one of 
whom was Joseph^ born in Biddeford about 1749, married Abigail, 
daughter of Michael and Elizabeth (Dyer) Woodsum of Buxton, 

Michael Woodsum was probably son of Joseph of Berwick, as 
his marriage record states he was of that town. His wife Elizabeth 
Dyer was of Biddeford, where she was baptized in 1755. Joseph 
Woodman was an enterprising, wide-awake business man, associated 
with most of the prominent business of Buxton during his man- 
hood, employing and directing most of his life many men, always 
charitable, indulgent and kind, had few enemies and many friends. 
He had twelve children, one of whom was Joseph^ born 1783, mar- 
ried first, Susanna, daughter of Rev. Paul Coffin of Buxton, 181 3. 
She died, 1833. He married second, Dorcas, daughter of Dr. Royal 
Brewster of Buxton, 1837. 

We find him a student in Exeter Academy in 1802-3. He studied 
law with Hon. Cyrus King and Joseph Bartlett of Saco, and Hon. 
John Holmes of Alfred, was admitted to the bar, 1809. He settled 
in Buxton, where all his sons were born. In 1840 he went to Illinois 
to visit a son and spent the remainder of his life at the West. He 
was a man of clear discriminating intellect, cared not for public 
office, though at one time a member of the house of representatives 
of Massachusetts while Maine was a part of that state. He held the 
respect and esteem of all who knew him. He had five children of 
whom the eldest was Cyrus, the subject of this paper, born June 2, 
1814, being therefore a grandson of Rev. Paul Coffin. 

Mr. Woodman married in 1842 at Tremont, Illinois, Charlotte, 
daughter of Dea. Ephraim Flint of Baldwin, Me. In the summer 
of 1856 he went to Europe with his family, and returned to the 
West in 1859. He was nominated and elected a member of the 



322 Mahie Historical mid Genealogical Recorder. 

lower House in the Wisconsin legislature in 1861, but resigned 
before taking his seat on account of business engagements out of 
the state. He moved to Cambridge, Mass., in 1863, where he 
remained till his death, March 30, 1889. 

At his decease his remains were brought for interment with those 
of his ancestors at Buxton. The church where the funeral services 
were held was thronged with people of his native town, who came 
to look for the last time on one they respected and loved. 

He had six children : Mary, Frank, Frank, 2d, Walter, Walter, 2d, 
and Edward. His wife, two sons and the daughter survive him. 
The sons, Walter a physician, and Edward a lawyer, are residents 
of Portland, Maine.

THE WASHINGTON MONUMENT AT SULGRAVE. 



\Fro7n The Daily Reporter^ Northampton^ England^ Saturday^ Aug. 24^ i88g?[ 

The theft of Washington brasses from Sulgrave church is an 
archaeological loss to the county, for there seems to be little hope of 
these interesting memorials of the Washingtons being recovered. 
Nearly a fortnight ago two men, in gentlemanly attire, visited Sul- 
grave. As they appeared to be Americans no one thought it at all 
out of the way that they should visit the parish church, where there 
is a memorial to two ancestors of the founder of the great American 
Republic. They were allowed free run of the place, which is inva- 
riably open all day. Sulgrave church, indeed, is a shrine to which 
many patriotic Americans make a devotional pilgrimage when visit- 
ing the mother country. The Sunday following it was discovered 
that two of the brasses affixed to the Washington Slab in the nave 
had been forcibly removed, and taken away. This slab was made 
after the decease of Amy Washington, the wife of Lawrence Wash- 
ington, as a memorial of herself and her husband. Six different 
plates of brass were let in the stone. The first contained the Wash- 
ington Coat of Arms, a white shield crossed with two red stripes, 
and toward the top three red stars. This coat of arms, borne by 
the Washingtons who emigrated to America, was the origin of the 
Stars and Stripes, or Stars and Garters of the United States, the 
national flag. Near, one on each side in brasS; were formerly effi- 
gies of Washington and his wife, and below them on a brass plate 
of oblong shape, was the following inscription in three lines: — 

Here lyeth buried y^ bodys of Laurence Wasshingto Gent & Amee his 
wyf by whome he had issue iiij sons & vij daughts w*^ laurence Dyed y^ day of 

an** 15 & Amee Deceassed the vi day of October an*' Diii 1564. 

Under this are representations of the four sons and seven daughters 
in two groups. 



350 Maijie Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

The costume of Lawrence Washington and his children is that 
of the ordinary attire of civiHans of the middle of the i6th century. 
The father wears a close-fitting doublet, a large loose gown, with 
demi-canon sleeves purfled with fur, and large broad-toed shoes. 
The boys wear large doublets, knee breeches, long hose, and shoes 
like their father, and each has his gyficiere at his girdle. The girls 
wear close-fitting caps, with gowns reaching to the ankles, and 
secured round the waist with a band. The brass representing Amy 
Washino^ton no lono^er remains. 

From the brasses it would seem that the decease of the wife was 
the occasion for the laying down of the monument, as the date of 
her death, 1564, is inserted, while the date of her husband's demise 
is left blank (after the custom of the time) to be filled in when he 
too should die. When he died, in 1583, however, that was not done. 

This Lawrence Washington of Sulgrave, whose monument has 
just been robbed, was twice Mayor of Northampton, in 1533 and 
again in 1546; and his name appears upon two of the mayoralty 
shields in the Town Hall of Northampton. He is described by 
Baker as of Northampton and of Gray's Inn, Esquire. His first 
wife was Elizabeth Gough, the widow of William Gough of North- 
ampton, and his second, Amy, daughter of Robert Partiger of Great- 
worth. In the thirtieth year of the reign of Henry VIII (1538-39), 
the manor of Sulgrave, and all lands in Sulgrave belonging to the 
dissolved priories of Canon's Ashby and Catesby, were granted to 
him. After his death, in 1583, his heir, Robert Washington, and 
Robert's eldest son, also named Laurence, sold the manor to another 
member of the family. 

Of course, the great interest in this memorial centers in the rela- 
tion Lawrence Washington bore to the founder of the United States 
Republic. Baker, in his great History of Northamptonshire, traces 



Mai7ie Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 351 



the pedigree of George Washington from John Washington, of 
Whitfield, in Lancashire, through this identical Lawrence and his 
second wife, Amy, and their grandson Lawrence Washington of 
Sulgrave. Sir Henry Dryden, however, writes : — 

According to Baker, the last-named Lawrence had, amongst other sons, John and 
Lawrence, who emigrated to America, and from the first of whom was descended 
George Washington, the first President of the United States. It has been shown 
by Col. Chester, in " The Herald and Genealogist," of August, 1866, that there is 
no evidence that the John and Lawrence who emigrated were the John and Law- 
rence the sons of Lawrence who died in 1616, or that they came from this county, 
and that there is strong presumptive evidence against the identity. Unfortunately, 
Baker's pedigree has been accepted by nearly all inquirers from his day to the 
present. It was only a coincidence that a John and Lawrence Washington of the 
Sulgrave family existed at about the same period as another John and Lawrence 
Washington emigrated to America. 

It is needless here to go into the question of the relative claims 
of the Lancashire and Northamptonshire branches of the family of 
John Washington of Whitfield. Each has its champions and its 
defenders. There are, however, many both in America and in Eng- 
land who believe that George Washington's immediate ancestors 
were Northamptonshire people. 

Time has told somewhat on this monument of Lawrence and 
Amy Washington, and it is also to be regretted, the hand of the 
thief as well. The head of Lawrence Washington has been knock- 
ed off; the brass effigy of his wife has been stolen and taken away 
bodily ; and the enamel with which the coat of arms was colored 
has crumbled nearly all away, leaving scarce a trace behind. 

The two portions recently taken away are those representing the 
"iiij sons and vij daughters." Each of these pieces could be cov- 
ered by a sheet of notepaper. We may add that on the Sulgrave 
brass the family name is spelled Wasshington, such authorities as 



352

Bridges, Baker and Dryden to the contrary notwithstanding. In 
the Northampton Grammar School Deeds the name of this same 
Lawrence is spelled Wassyngton. Hudson, in his " Brasses of 
Northamptonshire," gives a reduced fac-simile of the brasses, but 
as Sir Henry Dryden points out, he omitted to copy the coat of arms. 
Probably, however, that was due to the fact that the arms were 
originally colored, or enameled, and the painstaking author did not 
consider that a painted memorial should be included in a work on 
brasses.

GUSTIN (AUGUSTINE JEAN). 



The following communication with Mr. George Wilmot Gustin may interest those 
of our readers in any way connected with this family history, and also those who 
are curious to see how a name of one of our early settlers became entirely changed 
on coming to this country : 

I have been informed that my ancestor fled to Lynn, Mass., from 
Falmouth, May 26, 1690, at the second destruction of the town, 
and that he took with him one chair. I thought it strange indeed 
that he could have saved even this and carried it with him to Lynn. 

John Gustin was married in 1760, was a tax payer in Falmouth 
in 1777. The old Falmouth records has the date of his birth Feb. 
6, 1729, son of David and Jenie, and a grandson of Augustine Jean* 

*Willis, in his history of Portland, says : "Among 'lots laid out on the west side 
of Broad street, Falmouth (now India street, Portland), the fourth lot was to Au- 
gustine John, with liberty in the Cove (Clay Cove), arment iox a brickyard.' 

John or Jean was a Frenchman and purchased of widow Housing a smali lot west 
side of Presumpscot river, where he lived. I had some doubts, says Willis, whether 
John Gustin and Augustine John were not the same person ; the descendants of 
John Gustin are numerous here. The word arment is so in the record ; it was pro- 
bably incorrectly copied. As this lot extended down to Clay Cove, the grant was 
doubtless intended to convey a privilege on the cove in the rear of the lot for the 
purpose of making bricks. [I am informed by the antiquary, James Savage of Bos- 
ton, that Augustine John or Jean, as it is first written, was not a Frenchman, but a 
native of the Isle of Jersey, where his parents died. 

He sold his estate in Jersey in 1677. He came first to Reading, Mass., and was 
a soldier in the latter part of Phillip's war. In January, 1678, he married Eliza, a 
daughter of John Brown of Watertown. The name was gradually changed from 
Augustine Jean to Augustine John first, and then to John Gustin, by which his nu- 
merous descendants in Portland and vicinity are now called. He left a widow and 
seven children.] 

John Gustin bought land on Presumpscot river just above the falls, of Thomas 
Cloice, in 1686, and lived upon it. After the destruction of the town he lived in 



354 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

de LeTacq, a native of St. Ouens, Isle of Jersey. I am trying to 
write a history of the family, but am well nigh discouraged in the 
attempt to make a record of the two branches that remain in Maine, 
descendants of David and Ebenezer. 

Augustine was not a refugee from persecution, and he came 
(1675) ^^^^ years before the revocation of the edict of Nantes, from 
St. Ouens, Isle of Jersey. He was born there Jan. 9, 1647, ^^^ ^^^^ 
the son of Edmond, who married April 25, 1638, Esther, daughter 
of Jean Le Rossignot. 

Augustine was so named for his mother's brother, M. Augustine 
Le Rossignot of St. Ouens. He describes himself as a marring and 
appears to have been a captain in the merchant service. The pay 
rolls of Phillip's war would make him a sergeant in the company of 
Capt. Beeres; at least, no private in the army received the credit 
given liim on the rolls. 

I have an idea that Augustine did not come to this country in the 

L3mn. He returned to Falmouth where he died in 1719, leaving a widow, Elizabeth, 
and children, vSamuel, John, Ebenezer, Thomas, David, Sarah and Abigail. 

I have before intimated an opinion that this person is the same who received a 
grant from Danforth under the name of Augustine John who was a Jerseyman. I 
am confirmed in that opinion by a fact stated by Peter Housing in a petition in 1687, 
that his mother sold one-half of his father's farm on the west side of Presumscot 
river to 'Gustian John, a Frenchman.' 

Now Housing was connected by marriage with John Cloice from whom he received 
land on the Presumscot ; and Thomas Cloice, son of John, who received the prin- 
cipal part of his father's land on the river conveyed to John Gustin sixty acres of it 
Dec. 14, 1686. 

John Gustin subsequently claimed and his family occupied it, and his descendants 
live in that neighborhood to this day (1865). We hear nothing afterward of Augus- 
tine John, except as a subscriber to a petition in 16S9, in which his name is written 
' Gustan John.' John Gustin is again mentioned as a subscriber in a petition for a 
fortification July 20, 17 16, at the town of Falmouth, commonly called Old Casco." 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 355 

early spring of 1675 alone, but with something of a colony from his 
native isle. About that time I find the family of De la Close com- 
ing to Salem. Mass., from Jersey, their name was likewise "murdered 
in cold blood," and is to this day simply Dell. May not his com- 
panions Pierre, Baudoin Botuineau, Bayer and le Breton, have also 
come from Jersey. It certainly would have been no more remarka- 
ble for these men to have emigrated from St. Ouens than from 
Cornwall or any other part of the British Empire. 

Historically the question is an interesting one. The records of 
the descendants of Augustine are wonderfully complete, especially 
those of the three brothers that left Maine, Samuel, John jr. (my 
great-great-grandfather), and Thomas. 

The Hamiltons, Snowdens and Thompsons of Philadelphia; the 
Chews, Hunters, Greenes, etc., of Virginia, and many distinguished 
families are descended from Augustine. 

I am trying to make the record of the Maine Gustins more com- 
plete, but find it a work of great difficulty for reason of poor records, 
and often none at all. The slightest hint the readers of the Re- 
corder can give me on this family will be most gratefully received.

The church at Standish was organized and Rev. John Thompson ordained pastor, 
Oct. 26, 1768, the original members being John Thompson, Geo. Freeman, Josiah 
Shaw, David Sanborn, John Pierce, Michael Philbrick and Peter Moulton. Mr. 
Thompson remained pastor until April 7, 1783, when he was dismissed and went to 
Berwick. There is no record of church acts after this until the call of Rev. Jona- 
than Gould, who was ordained as pastor Sept. 18, 1793. He died of consumption, 
July 26, 1795- Rev. Daniel Marrett was ordained Sept. 21, 1796, and on ''Dec. 23, 
1829, the pastoral relations of Rev. Daniel Marrett, which had existed for thirty- 
three years and three months, was dissolved by mutual agreement between him, the 
church and parish." On the same day Rev. Thomas Tenney was ordained as 
pastor, and continued such until Feb. 5, 1834, when he was dismissed. The old 
church became Unitarian, and a new church called The Evangelical Congregational 
Church was formed. 

Rev. A. D. Wheeler was ordained as pastor of the Unitarian church, Jan. 13 
1835 ; Rev. A. M. Briggs was installed Jan. 25, 1843 5 ^ev. E. J. Gerry installed

THE DIGHTON FAMILY. 



BY JOSIAH H. DRUMMOND. 




HE discoveries of Governor Williams in England in rela- 
tion to the family of his ancestress, Frances Dighton, have 
been supplemented by other discoveries on this side of the 
water by Edgar Hodges Reed, Esq., of Taunton, which he has 
kindly allowed me to make public through the Recorder, in which 
Gov. Williams' article has just been published. 

Katharine Dighton, bap. Jan. i6, 1614, In St. Nicholas church 
in Gloucester, is known to have married, first, Samuel Haighburne, 
[Hackburn, or Hagburne]. In her father's will, according to Gov. 
Williams' correspondent, the name is Haydur7ie ; but subsequent 
developments suggest that the true reading of the will is Hagburne, 
Savage says that Samuel Hackburne and his wife Katharine 
came to Roxbury and settled there. Their children were : 

Elizabeth, b. May 7, 1635 (born in England). 
Samuel, b. Jan. 20, 1638. 
John, b. May 26, 1640. 

Hannah, bap. June 5, 1642, but according to Boston copy of record (which 
Savage says is erroneous), b. Jan. 5, 1643. 

The father was admitted freeman, May 2, 1638, at the same time 
as Robert Williams of Roxbury ; and Robert Williams, Samuel 
Hagburne, Elizabeth Williams, wife of Robert Williams, and "Kath- 
eren Hagborne, wife of Samuel Hagborne," were admitted to the 
church at Roxbury apparently at the same time. He died Jan. 24, 
1643, leaving a will, an abstract of which is published in the New 
England Hist, and Gen. Register, Vol. 2, p. 261. 

Katharine married April 14, 1644, Governor Thomas Dudley, 
and by him had: 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 363 

Deborah, b. Feb. 27, 1645. 
Joseph, b. Sept. 23, 1647. 
Paul, b. Sept. 8, 1650. 
In the " Dudley Genealogy " is a full account of these children. 

Gov. Dudley died July 31, 1653, and Katharine married, Nov. 
8, 1653, Rev. John Allin of Dedham, and by him had : 

Benjamin, b. Aug. 11, 1654. 
Daniel, b. July 31, 1655. 
Eliezur, b. May 26, 1658. 

He died Aug. 26, 1671, and she died three days later and was 
buried in the same grave. 

Of her children by her first husband nothing has been known, 
except that Savage says that Hannah married Samuel Hunting, Dec. 
24, 1662, and that Samuel held an office of trust in New London 
in 1664, and had been there four years before, and remained there 
at least four years afterward. 

Dea. Reed finds that Elizabeth, daughter of Samuel Hagburne 
of Roxbury, married Dr. John Chickering of Dedham, but who 
afterward moved to Charlestown, where he died July 28, 1676. In 
1677, she married Thomas Greaves, and died July 22, 1679, aged 
forty-four years. 

Samuel Hagburne jr. was at one time in Charlestown ; but he 
finally came to Taunton, and died there among his kindred on his 
mother's side. 

Dea. Reed, in his collection of inscriptions upon the grave- 
stones in " Old Taunton," has the inscription upon his gravestone 
still existing, as follows : 

Hear lies the body of Samuel Hagborne died November 14, 1725, in the 88*^ 
year of his age. 

It will be noted that his age at his death corresponds precisely 
with the date of his birth, already given. 



364 Maiite Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

Dea. Reed also found the record of the will of Samuel Hagborn 
in the Bristc)! County Probate Office, dated Sept. 24, 1723, and 
proved Jan. 12, 1725-6, In it he gives (among other items): 

To the Church of Christ in Oxford, N. E., 50 pounds ; said money is due from 
William Makepeace of Taunton, upon a bond bearing date March 19, 1721. The 
money to be paid by my executors to Capt. Thos. Moore of Oxford for the church. 

To Mary Hall of Taunton, widow of Joseph, 100 pounds; 60 pounds is due me 
from Mary Shepheard of Dorchester, remaining 40 pounds from William Hodges, 
ir., of Taunton. 

To Seth Williams of Taunton 10 pounds. 

To Mary Hall his household goods, she to pay his funeral charges. 

To Seth Williams and Mary Hall the remainder of his goods, and they to be his 
executors. 

The will is witnessed by William Robinson^ Jonathan Shaw and John Hall. 

From the fact that no other mention is made of Samuel Hag- 
borne in the Bristol County records, Dea. Reed properly infers that 
he had lived at Taunton, but a comparatively few years. 

From Hay ward's Gazeteer we learn that : 

" The original township of Oxford was granted to Joseph Dudley and others in 
1680, for the accommodation of 30 French Protestant families, etc." Joseph Dud- 
ley was Katharine's son, and half-brother of Samuel Hagborne. 

Dea. Reed adds: 

They had a mmister, but being troubled by the Indians the most of them left 
and went to Boston, where a French church was maintained by them. Perhaps 
some of them remained behind, and Samuel Hagborne's gift was to them. While 
the bequest in this will to Seth Williams was natural (Seth being son of the testa- 
tor's own cousin), that to Mary Hall was a puzzle, for no relationship between the 
families was known, save that John Hall in England had married Anna Williams, 
sister of Richard of Taunton. 

But the investigations of Dea. Reed have solved the problem, 
and brought to light interesting and important facts. 

The will of Samuel Hagborne senior, dated July 24, 1643, speaks 



Maine Historical and Ge^iealogical Recorder, 365 

of " my brother Lugg." There were then in Boston two brothers 
(as appears by the will of one of them), John and Abraham Lugg. 

The will of John Dighton (father of Frances), speaks of his 
eldest daughter Jane. 

Savage says that John Lugg of Boston, 1637, by wife Jane had 
born in Boston : 

Elizabeth, b. March 7, 1638 ; bap. March 24, 1639. 

Mary, b. Aug., 1642, but bap. Sept. 25, when, according to the record of bap- 
tisms, she was " about 4 days old." 
John, bap. Aug. 4, 1644, "about 2 days old," who died in 1647. 

This indicates pretty strongly that Jane Lugg, the wife of John, 
was Jane Dighton, the elder sister of Frances and Katharine. 

But Dea. Reed has found conclusive evidence of this, in a docu- 
ment on record in Bristol County Registry of Deeds, from which 
the following is an extract : 

"Easter Marshall, a widow four score years of age, living in Norton, whose maiden 
name was Hester Lugg, dau. of Mr. John Lugg and Jane Lugg, his wife, who lived 
near the city of Gloucester in Great Britain, for and in consideration of the care 
which her son-in-law, John Hall of said Norton, hath for many years past taken 
of her in her old age, and that he continueth to take the like care of her, and hath 
obliged himself to provide for her all things necessary for her comfort during her 
natural life, and for other good causes and considerations, especially moving," etc. 

Gives all her right, etc., in the estate of her honored father and mother, John 
Lugg and Jane Lugg, deceased, and in any other estate of her kindred and relations 
which might come to her in Great Britain or New England, to her son-in-law John 
Hall, whom she appoints her attorney. 

Dated Feb. n, 17 13-4, and sworn to March 4, 17 13-4. Witnessed by Benjamin 
Williams and William Leonard. 

Widow Esther Bell married Richard Marshall, Feb. 11, 1676-7. 

This identifies "Easter Marshall" as Esther Bell, the wife of James 
Bell, who was killed by the Indians early in 1676, leaving a widow 
and several children, among them Mary, who married Joseph Hall 



366 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

July 13, 1693, and Esther, who married John Hall (of that part 
of Taunton which afterward became Norton, and then Mansfield), 
Dec. 14, 1692, and who was the son-in-law mentioned in the docu- 
ment above described. 

She was cousin to Samuel Hagborne, and the Mary Hall, widow 
of Joseph, mentioned in Samuel's will was his cousin's daughter of 
the same degree of kindred with him as Seth Williams. 

Her ao:e when she executed that instrument shows that she was 
born in England, and explains why her birth was not recorded in 
Boston. 

It appears from certain proceedings in court under date of 
October 27, 1647, '^^'^^ John Lugg had then died, leaving five chil- 
dren, and that his widow Jane had married Jonathan Negus. By 
him she had a son, Isaac, who settled in Taunton, marrying Han- 
nah Andrews, the sister (or daughter) of the Henry Andrews, who 
was killed by the Indians at the same time Jane's son-in-law, 
James Bell, was killed. 

The descendants of James and Esther Bell are very numerous, 
and they, as well as those of Frances and Katharine, are found to 
be descendants of Surgeon John and Jane (Bassett) Dighton. 

These facts suggest that Richard and Frances Williams, Samuel 
and Katharine Hagborne, John and Jane Lugg, and others (very 
probably George Hall and Abraham Lugg), came to this country 
together. 

It would seem that the name of the vessel and the date of their 
arrival ought to be within the possibility of discovery. Who will 
discover them }

NONESUCH POINT. 



AYillis Papers, Bk. R : 30, — in Portland Public Library. 

Oct. 6, 1687. 
Laid out to Capt. Silvanus Davis & James English, first — 440 acres lying between 
Long Creek and Nonsuch Creek upon Casco River. Second — 92 acres near ad- 
joining to Nonsuch Point. 

York Reg., 21 : 99. 

James Webber deposes 9 March, 1718-19 : That he lived in Casco 

that the town granted to Thomas Webber a mill privilege on Long Creek which his 
son Samuel sold to John Skillings, & that " the above mentioned mill was built at 
Long Creek at the head of the falls, the creek goeth in by ' Nonesuch Point.' " 

Town Records, I, 345. 

Falmouth Town Meeting, 5 March, 1729. 
Agreement with Thomas Westbrook and Samuel Waldo relating to the exchange 
of certain lands; and among other things, — It is also agreed that there be a com- 
mittee chosen to run the bounds of 92}^ acres of land of Westbrook and Waldo's 
lying near adjoining to Nonesuch Point, also the bounds of 205 acres att Long 
Krick &c. &c. 

The second patent from Gorges to Trelawny of 200 acres in 1638 extended in a 
strip of land from New River to River of Casco (Fore River) at the junction of 
Long Creek. As this land covered much of the tract through which the lower 
Nonesuch River passed, it appears evident from the above extracts that the whole 
tract was called by the name of the river ; hence the name Nonesuch Point, on 
River of Casco, at the northern terminus of the Trelawny grant. See map in 
** Trelawny Papers," p. 63. w. m. s.

Williams, Robert, of Roxbury, Mass. The 
undersigned is compiling a record of the descen- 
dants of above in both male and female branches 
— extending to the grandchildren of the females 
of the name, with their families. He takes this 
method of reaching those with whom he has not, 
thus far, been in correspondence, and desires 
them to send him their addresses and relation- 
ship to Robert Williams, of Roxbury, Mass., so 
that the necessary blanks can be sent to them 
for such records as may be incomplete.

The Lomb Prize Essay. Practical Sanitary 
and Economic Cooking, adapted to persons of 
moderate means, by Mrs. Mary Hinman Abel. 
This little book is considered by good judges to 
be of great practical use in many families in this 
country, if it can be placed there. This is pure- 
ly an effort to better the condition of the home, 
and to make happier the family circle. The 
humble citizen of our country, who made possi- 
ble this essay through his generosity, receives no 
financial return for his constant expenditure in 
its distribution. The nominal price placed upon 
it pays only the clerical labor, postage, etc. It 
can be had at the bookstores.

Knox (Nock) Thomas, of Dover, N. H., in 
1652, and some of his descendants. This gene- 
alogy is compiled by Dr. W. B. Lapham, of 
Augusta, Me,, and is replete with historical 
sketches and notes. A genealogy of the Sher- 
burne family is added, making a pamphlet of 34 
pp., well arranged and neatly printed. 



Dudley Family, History with genealogical 
tables, pedigree>, etc., is being continued. We 
have received No, IV, and find it no less valu- 
able in historical facts and data, than the first. 
How C5uld it be otherwise with Dean Dudley 
behind it? Read his preface to No. IV, and see 
how true it is of many of us. This is a valuable 
work, not only for the Dudleys, but for all con- 
nected with this old and wide spread family.

The Most Desirable Suburb in San Antonio for a Home. 



Location and Scenery.— Lake View is situated two miles west from the center of, and at an elevation of 
about one hundred feet above, tlie city of San Antonio. All the principal streets running west lead directly to 
the property. Its commanding elevation furnishes scenic advantages unsurpassed in Southwest Texas. 

Health FULNESS, — Probably there is no part of America that offers more attractions to persons suffering 
from throat or pulmonary troubles, including asthma, also kidney and rheumatic affections, than Southwest 
Texas, and of Southwest Texas there is no spot more healthy tliiin San Antonio and its suburbs. The writer 
speaks, not only from personal experience, but from the standpoint of a physician who has given this matter a 
great deal of careful study, and wiio knows his statements are accurate. 

Lake View offers great inducements at the present time as a winter resort, for the following reasons: The 
suburbs is for strictly first-class residence propei-ty; the elevation is high and commanding; the atmosphere is 
free from all impurities, is not malarious, and is rich in ozone; the temperature is delightful; in fact, natui'e 
and art have combined to make Lake View a most charming surburban home. 

As AN Investjient it olfers special advantages; the prices of the propei'ty are very low, with the prospect of 
an eirly and rapid rise. The New England Laud Company offers this property in single house lots, blocks, or 
acreage property. 

A cordial invitation is extended to all persons who visit San Antonio to call upon the General Manager at the 
office of the Compaiy, where any information pertaining to this part of our country will be cheerfully furnished. 
For further particulars, address, 

William P. Watson, No. 9 East Houston Street, San Antonio, Texas. 



PORTL 





Is the new town situated upon the cliffs which rise to a height of from thirty to 
forty feet above the water on the north shore of the bay of Corpus Christi. 
The future of Portland is assured for the following reasons. The San Antonio & 
Aransas Pass road now runs directly through the land, and a railroad station is 
established at Portland. It is so situated that all the future railroads from Central 
and Southern Texas or Mexico, to reach the Aransas Pass Harbor, will run 
through the property. 

It is in near proximity to both Aransas Pass Harbor and the New Ship Canal which is now being 
built through Mustang Island by Col. E. H. Ropes of Corpus Christi. Aransas Pass Harbor will 
soon become one of the finest upon our coast, and as soon as the ship canal and Aransas Harbor 
is finished. Corpus Christi Bay will become the scene of great activity. The most rapid growth will 
follow which has ever been known in our country. Portland is famous for its delicious oysters and 
other sea foods. It is famous for its health. Its death rate is less than that of the most famous 
health resorts in the world. This is due to its situation on a noble bluff facing the salt water, swept 
by the salt sea breezes fresh from the Gulf of Mexico. The breezes make it cooler in summer than 
any locality in Texas. These breezes also make it warmer in winter than any locality in Texas. The 
lowest thermometer, 1888-89, was only 40°. It had only one freezing spell in the winter of 1889 
and 1890. Farms here will grow anything: tobacco, suffar, cotton, figs, grapes. A large vineyard 
in the neighborhood is valued at $1,000 an acre. They grow peaches. Garden truck is shipped 
from these lands every month in the year. The rich, dark soil needs no fertilizing. Rainfall right 
here is heavier than in the Middle or New England States. 

A party of New England gentlemen have purchased twelve hundred and eighty acres of land in 
Portland, which has one mile frontage upon the bluff, and extends back from the shore two miles. 
These gentlemen are about forming a syndicate in New England, and propose to offer the land at 
an extremely low figure, and as soon as the syndicate is formed a company will be incorporated. 
This land has doubled in value since it was purchased, and within three months will be again worth 
double its present value. This is one of the choicest investments which has ever been offered to 

the people of New England. William P. Watson, San Antonio, Texas.

JONATHAN CILLEY OF MAINE 

AND 

WILLIAM J. GRAVES OF KENTUCKY, REPRESENTATIVES IN 

CONGRESS. 



AN HISTORICAL DUEL, 1838. 



AS NARRATED BY GEN. GEO. W. JONES,* CILLEY'S SECOND, TO E. M. BOYLE, 

IN PHILADELPHIA PRESS. 




WAS delegate in Congress from the Territory of Wis- 
consin in February, 1838, when the debate took place in 
the House of Representatives between Jonathan Cilley, 
of Maine, on the one hand, and Henry A. Wise, Bailie Peyton 
and John Bell on the other. The question was the character of 

*General Jones was Mr. Cilley's second, and he is now, 18S9, the only survivor of an encounter 
in which President Van Buren, President Pierce, President Polk, Jefferson Davis, Henry Clay, 
Thomas H. Benton, and many other leading men were interested, directly and indirectly. General 
Jones, in his narrative, which is given practically in his own words, makes a great many statements 
of historic value — the fact, for instance, that Henry Clay wrote the form of the challenge, and 
insisted that the duel should be fought to the death. General Jones, who was a delegate in Con- 
gress from Wisconsin, for twelve years, a United States senator and minister to Bogota, is a 
sprightly old gentleman of eighty-five years, quick of speech, with a most wonderful memory. He 
served in the war of 181 2, and the Black Hawk war, and filled various positions until the close of 
his political career, which ended by his being sent to Fort Lafayette for two months during the 
early days of the war, for some improper communication with Jefferson Davis. General Jones 
claims to have presented in Congress the first scheme to build a trans-continental railway, and he 
did much toward making public improvements in the West.

the administration of President Van Buren, who was attacked by 
the three gentlemen, and defended by Mr. Cilley. Mr. James K. 
Polk, afterward president, was then speaker. Mr. Cilley arose in 
his place and said: 

'" It is a very easy matter for the gentlemen to make charges 
aoainst the administration of Mr. Van Buren, but it must be 
remembered that the newspapers charge that General James Wat- 
son Webb, editor of the Courier ajid Enquirer^ of New York, 
(then the organ of the Whig party and of Henry Clay), received a 
bribe of ^52,000 for his advocacy of the re-chartering of the bank 
of the United States.' 

" Wise, Peyton and Bell flew at Mr. Cilley at once. Mr. Wise said : 
^ Does the gentleman charge General Webb with having received a 
bribe of $52,000.'^ ' Mr. Cilley replied: ' I make no charge — - the 
newspapers make the charge.' Mr. Wise then asked: 'Does the 
gentlemen believe the charge .^^ ' Mr. Cilley replied: 'I make no 
declaration as to what I believe — I only state what the newspapers 
say.' 

" General Webb had in the gallery of the House a friend, Dr. 
Davis, correspondent for his paper. Davis reported the furious 
debate to General Webb, in New York. Webb came down to 
Washington and called upon his friends and William J. Graves, 
representative from Louisville, and Mr. Graves was asked to bear a 
note from General Webb to Mr. Cilley, which he did. Upon Mr. 
Graves presenting it to Mr. Cilley, he declined to receive it. Mr. 
Cilley said ; ' I have no acquaintance with General Webb, and I do 
not wish to receive any note from him.' Graves returned with the 
note to Webb's n^ess, at Miss Hill's boarding-house, on Pennsyl- 
vania avenue. It was called the Kentucky mess, Henry Clay being 
at the head of it. 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 387 

" Mr. Graves told them that Mr. Cilley had declined to receive 
the note. (This I got afterward from General Wise.) Mr, Clay 

said ' Go back and tell the Yankee that it isn't a challenge, 

that it is merely a note of inquiry.' Mr. Graves went back, saw 
Mr. Cilley, and told him that it was a note of inquiry, whereupon 
Mr. Cilley replied: "Mr. Graves, as I said before, I have no 
acquaintance with General Webb, and have no desire to receive the 
note.' Mr. Graves said that placed him in an unpleasant situation. 
Mr. Cilley responded : ^ I have the highest respect for you. I do 
not decline to receive this note out of any disrespect to you, but 
for the reasons I have stated.' Graves went back to the Kentucky 
mess, and told what had occurred. Mr. Clay said: ' Graves, this is 
an insult to you. You have got to challenge the Yankee.' 

" Mr. Clay drew the form of the challenge in writing, and Graves 
then went from the Kentucky mess to see Mr. Wise at King's, and 
asked Wise if he would take a challenge from him (William J. 
Graves) to Mr. Cilley. Wise immediately complied. He took the 
challenge to Mr. Cilley in the morning. Mr. Cilley took the note 
and said, ' I accept the challenge, Mr. Wise, and will send my 
friend to you.' 

"Mr. Wise told me he modified the challenge as drawn up by Mr. 
Clay, because it was too peremptory, of too harsh a nature. Mr. 
Cilley sent his friend, Franklin Pierce, afterward president of the 
United States, then senator from New Hampshire, to my boarding- 
house on Capitol Hill. 

" I went over from the House of Representatives for dinner, and 
walked into Dr. Linn's room, as he was ill and confined to his bed. 
As I entered the room I saw Franklin Pierce standing between 
Dr. Linn's bed and Colonel Thomas H. Benton, who was on his 
left. I heard Dr. Linn say : ' There's the man ; he'll do it.' Then 



388 Mai7ie Historical and Gejiealogical Recorder. 

I heard Colonel Benton say: ' They can't object to the rifle; you 
can refer them to the case of Moore and Letcher (and one or two 
others whose names I forget), who fought with rifles.' I went out 
of Dr. Linn's room to order some dinner for him at his request. 
Senator Pierce followed me, and, putting his hand on my shoulder, 
said: ' General, will you do this? ' 

" I asked, " What do you mean } ' ' Don't you know,' said he, 
•what's going on .f^ ' * No, I don't,' said L ' Don't you know that 
our friend Cilley has been challenged by Graves } ' ' Why, no, I 
don't,' said L 'What's the matter .^^ ' 'In consequence of that 
debate the other day,' replied Mr. Pierce. ' Why,' said [, ' Mr. 
Graves didn't have anything to say in that debate ; he didn't say an 
objectionable word that day.' ' Well,' said Mr. Pierce, ' Mr. Graves 
has challenged Mr. Cilley, and Cilley has sent me to ask you to be 
his second.' 

" ' Mr. Pierce,' I said, ' I can't consent to act as second at all. 
It will connect me with the Democratic party.' I belonged to neither 
party at the time. Delegates in those days never took part in 
national politics. ' It will destroy my influence in Congress. It 
will also defeat my bill for an appropriation to make a survey of a 
railway by way of Dubuque from Milwaukee to the Pacific coast, 
the first proposed trans-continental line.' 

" Well," said Mr. Pierce, in reply to my objection, " will you go 
over with me to the House of Representatives '^. Mr. Cilley 's 
second choice is General Miller of Massachusetts." I said : " I'll 
do anything except to be publicly connected with this duel.' I got 
into a carriage with Mr. Pierce, and we drove over to the Capitol. 
He asked me to sit down in the vice-president's room while he 
went to see General Miller. He soon returned, saying General 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 389 

Miller peremptorily refused to serve. He then asked me to go 
with him to see Cilley. 

" We got into the carriage, and on the way saw Colonel James 
Schaumberg, between Thirteenth and Fourteenth streets, on the 
north side. We saw him walking along with his ruffles all sticking 
out on his bosom and wristbands. Pierce said : ' There's Colonel 
Schaumberg, who had that duel on horseback with broadswords. 
His sword glanced off his opponent's blade, and cut off part of 
the horse's head.' He was father of Emily Schaumberg of Phila- 
delphia, the famous belle. Mr. Pierce stopped the driver and called 
to Schaumberg. I said : ' For God's sake, don't take him.' I ob- 
jected simply because I knew the fiery temper of the man, but 
Schaumberg got into the carriage. 

" We drove up to Dr. R 's. Then we walked up into Dn 

R 's room, where I saw Dr. R and his son, a doctor also, 

and Dr. Duncan and Bynum, member of the House of Represen- 
tatives from North Carolina, and Jonathan Cilley. As soon as we 
entered Cilley jumped up and cordially greeted me. 'I thank you, 
my dear General, for coming to stand by me on this occasion.' 
Said I : ' Mr. Cilley, I have not come to stand by you. I cannot 
serve you as second.' He said : ' You won't refuse to be my 
second } ' I said : ' If I serve it will ruin my prospects for delegate 
in Congress.' He said : ^ Come out here and let me talk to you,' 
and he took me out into the hall. He said : ' Now, General, I 
have stood by you in all your measures here in Congress, we have 
served together at our great twenty-second of February ball at 
Carusi's, and have aided you in every way possible, and we have 
been managers of this Washington birthday ball. Mr. Graves is a 
larger man than I am. He can take me by the collar with one

hand, hold me up and cowhide or cane me with the other, and I 
have no alternative but to fight him on this challenge.' 

" Mr. Cilley was a man who was perfectly irresistible. I con- 
sented to serve him. I went in and said : ^ Now, how do you want 
to fight, and when and where } ' Cilley said : ^ I want to fight 
immediately.' ' What do you want to fight with ? ' ' Rifles." 
' Have you got a rifle 1 ' I asked. ' Yes ! ' Cilley went to the 
clothespress, or Dr. Duncan did, and took out a rifle, beautifully 
ornamented with silver, and handed it to me. I said : * This rifle 
is too small. The bore is very small." Dr. Duncan spoke up 
then, saying : ' I had this rifle made to order. I can take the head 
off a squirrel on the highest tree in the Miami bottom.' ' It's too 
small," I persisted. Mr. Cilley said : ' I like it except this 
silver end-piece is too long, and the trigger a little too soft.' I 
said : ' I can make the trigger as hard as you please, and I can 
take off the end-piece.' He said the end-piece caught in his coat. 
I took my seat at the table, and wrote out the terms of the duel, 
which were to fight at eighty yards, with rifles, on the Marlborough 
road, leading to Baltimore. 

'^ I immediately drew the terms upon which they were to fight, 
but I said, ' Mr. Cilley, you have seen only one rifle, have you ? ' 
He said, ' Only one.' I said, ' I know that my friend, John For- 
syth (then secretary of state) has a fine rifle.' I said to Dr. 

Duncan, ' take this note and get Dr. R 's rifle.' I said to 

Schaumberg, ^ Jim, go to Mr. Blum, and Burnham you go to For- 
syth and get his rifle and bring them here, whilst I go to deliver 
this acceptance of the challenge to Mr. Graves.' I went down to 
Mr. Wise's room at King's and rang the bell. The servant came, 
and I asked him if Mr. Wise was in. ' Yes, master,' he said. Oh, 
I am getting ahead of my story. I had asked Cilley why he pre-

ferred rifles. ' Are you well acquainted with the rifle ? ' said I. 
* No, I am not," he said, ' but I expect the Kentuckian would 
prefer pistols, therefore I demand rifles that I may be on an 
equality.' 

^' Well, I walked into the house, and there I saw Mr. Wise, and 
Mr. Graves standing by his side, examining a pair of duelling 
pistols. Said I, ' Gentlemen, you are engaged in the very business 
I came to see you about.' Wise said, ' Graves you had better go 
out.' Graves went out. I handed the acceptance to Mr. Wise, 
saying, ' Here are Mr. Cilley's terms in writing.' (If Mr. Cilley 
had not accepted verbally, I would never have let him fight.) 

Mr. Wise uttered an oath and cried, ' Great God ! , who 

ever heard of such a thing as rifles } ' Said I, ' These are the 
terms upon which we fight, with rifles, immediately, on the Marl- 
borough road instead of Bladensburg, so as to avoid interruption.' 

^' ' Well,' said Wise, ' I don't know where there is a rifle in the 

whole city.' Then he swore again, and said in disgust, ^ ! 

Rifles } Why, it's barbarous ! ' I said, ' I have heard of their 
being used before.' It just then occured to me what I heard Colonel 
Benton say. I went back and told what had occurred, and Cilley 
said, ' Didn't I tell you they expected to fight with pistols ? ' 

'^Cilley was cool, calm, collected and cheerful. He was as brave 
as a man could be, and a kind hearted gentleman, too. When I 
had told them what had occurred. Dr. Duncan said : ' I expected 
they would say they could not get a rifle.' My people had secured 
a rifle from Forsyth and Schaumberg had got another, but Duncan 
didn't get one. He was bound to have his own fowl rifle used. 
'Well, now,' Duncan says, 'didn't I tell you so .^^ General, I just 
want you to go back and tell them we have two rifles we don't 
want, and they can have their choice or take both.' Schaumberg 



392 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

said, ' That's right.' I went back to Wise's room and said : ' I 
have come back to tender you the use of either of two rifles.' Mr. 
Wise said : ' We have now got one.' 

" Next morning, immediately after breakfast, I got at Fuller's 
hotel an omnibus (the only one in Washington ; they were new in 
those days) to take our party out. By the articles of agreement, 
each second was to have one surgeon and two friends, and each 
second could carry two pistols, but no other arms were to be on 
the ground, and no other persons belonging to either party were to 
be present. We started out, Mr. Cilley's party in the omnibus, the 
other party in two hacks. When we got to Dawson's I got out, 
went up to my room, got my buffalo long boots that come up to the 
thighs, and my robe. I put the robe under Cilley's feet to keep 
him from shivering — to keep him warm. As he rode along he 
said jocularly, 'General, I'll have to go to Wisconsin to live. I'll 
never be able to get any recognition in Maine after this.' 

'• B}^ and by, when we had got out of town, I saw one or two men 
on horseback close to the Graves party behind us. I told my 
driver to stop, and said : ' Mr. Wise, are those gentlemen connected 
with 3^ou } ' He said : ' I tried to drive them back, but couldn't, 
they said this is a free country, and they wouldn't go back.' I 
said: ' Mr. Graves, you have Mr. Calhoun and Mr. Haines. This 
is not in accordance with our articles of agreement.' He said : 
'They're not to be on the ground.' ' Well,' said I, ' I see you have 
two rifles in there.' Said he : ' In this one we got the bullet half 
way down and couldn't get it out or put it in farther. We'll give 
it to you, if you wish.' 

"When we get along further we saw a deserted field, and 
alighted. Mr. Wise and I locked arms and stepped off eighty 
paces. It was a thawing day, although there was a pretty severe 



Maine Historical a^id Genealogical Recorder. 393 

wind. We came back then to the middle of the ground, half from 
each end, and we tossed up for choice of positions, the one who 
won the toss to choose the position, and the other to give the word. 
Wise drew the right to choose his position, and I to give the 
word. We took our positions, twenty steps each from the line of 
fire, between the two men, I on Mr. Cilley's right, and Mr. Wise on 
Mr. Graves' right. Each of us had our duelling pistols by our 
side. Mr. Wise and I met in the center, and loaded the rifles, each 
in the presence of the other. Each one placed his principal, and 
put the rifle in his hand, the latter holding it at an angle of about 
forty-five degrees from the ground. 

'^ I gave the word thus : ' Gentlemen, are you ready } Fire ! One, 
two, three ; stop.' At the word ' Fire,' Mr. Cilley fired into the 
ground, not ten feet in front of him. Mr. Graves drew up and 
took deliberate aim. As soon as he fired I called, ' Mr. Wise, all 
right } ' and the answer was ' Yes.' I went to my friend and he to 
his. Mr. Graves made a dead miss. I said, ' Mr. Wise, I hope 
now you are satisfied ; my friend has fired into the ground not ten 
feet from him, and your friend, Mr. Graves, has taken deliberate aim. 
I hope you are satisfied.' Said he, ' No, Mr. Graves requires an- 
other fire.' I said, ' Well, load up, then.' We met again, loaded 
as before, and I again gave the word. 

"At the word 'fire,' Mr. Graves fired his gun off, Mr. Cilley 
took deliberate aim, and at about the word 'three,' fired. As soon 
as the rifle went off Mr. Graves stepped back a little, and I was 
certain he was shot. Said I : ' All right } ' Mr. Wise replied, 
' Yes.' I said to Cilley : ' You made a fine shot.' ' Yes,' he says, 
' I think I hit him.' Wise went to Graves and talked with him. I 
said again : 'I hope now you are satisfied.' 'Well, no,' Mr. Wise 
said. He had talked considerably with Graves before he came 



394 Maine Historical a7id Genealogical Recorder, 

back. I said, ' I think it ought to stop now.' He replied, ' Mr. 
Graves insists upon another fire.' Jim Schaumberg spoke up and 
said : ' By God, General, I think we had better make a general 
fight of this.' I remonstrated, saying: 'I think this had better be 
stopped.' Wise and John J. Crittenden and Menafee now had a 
triangular talk, but Graves insisted on another fire. We loaded up 
again, and as before I gave the word. 

" At the word ' three,' both guns went off simultaneously. Per- 
sons who didn't see the smoke swore there was but one explosion. 
Mr. Cilley fell down. His rifle struck the frozen ground, and broke 
off at the breech. I said, ' All right.' Mr. Wise replied, ' Yes, 
sir.' ' Just as I got to Mr. Cilley he gave one slow gasp and 
was dead. He never spoke.' " 

" Well, I got our omnibus. Mr. Wise came within twenty yards 
of me and said : ' How's your friend.^ ' Said I, ' He is dead.' He 
went back, came again directly and said : ' General Jones, have you 
any objection to Mr. Graves seeing Mr. Cilley ? ' ' None at all.' 
He went back, and he, Graves and John J. Crittenden came walking 
up to Cilley. As they walked deliberately toward the body I saw 
Wise and Crittenden talking, and I was afterward informed the 
latter said : ' Graves, you hadn't better go up,' and the}^ turned and 
went away. 

" The femoral artery was cut in two. We put the body in the 
bottom of the omnibus, and came back to Best's with it, where 
Mr. Cilley had boarded. 

" On the following Sunday morning my servant came to me and 
said: 'Mr. Wise of Virginia wants to see you.' I went down to 
the parlor to meet him. He said: 'General; are you willing to 
join me in making a statement for the public about this duel 1 ' 
Our breakfast bell rang, and I asked him to take breakfast with 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 395 

me, and I would consider the matter. It was Sunday morning. 
He said he had had an early breakfast in order that he might catch 
me before I went out. He went up to my room, and I went down 
to breakfast. I consulted Colonel Thomas H. Benton, president 
of our mess, and thirty years senator from Missouri, ' Who do you 
think Ifhave in my room ? ' I said ; ' Mr. Wise of Virginia, second 
for Graves. He came to ask me to join him in a statement for the 
public. I didn't give him any answer. What do you think about 
it ? ' Colonel Benton said : ' George, my son, that's just right ; you 
ought to do that.' He continued : ^ When I had a duel with Lucas 
our parties made a joint statement for the newspapers.' 

" Mr. Wise and I spent a whole day in making out that statement. 
Where we agreed we put it down. Where we couldn't agree, Wise 
would put it down as he understood it, and I would put it down as 
I understood it. I had never met Mr. Wise before, but from his 
manner I had formed an impression that he was a disagreeable 
man. We became devoted friends, and I found him to be a kind- 
hearted, generous gentleman."

by Scribner, N. Y., 1888. Her name is entered on these records as Betsey, sometimes called Eliz- 
abeth, and shortened to Elize. The above book says she was the third child in a family of twelve, 
but according to these records she was the sixth. — [Ed.] Her father came of English stock, and 
was born in Leicester, Mass., where his family had long been settled. Here he studied medicine, 
and when he had finished his course, he left his native place, and settled in Scarborough, Maine, 
where his talents and character soon won him a good position, and having some knowledge of law, 
was afterward appointed a judge in the Court of Common Pleas. His wife, "pretty Polly King," 
as she was familiarly called by her friends, was the second child of Mr. King, by his first wife. The 
eldest child was Rufus, who played a distinguished part in the early history of our country. Eliza- 
abeth Southgate married Walter Bowne, in 1803, and had Walter, 1806, and Mary, July, 1808, and 
died Feb. 19, 1909. — Clarence Cook.

on the record book of the town, by which his property must be 
proved.

valuable information relating to many of the 
earliest settlers of the States of New York, 
New Jersey, Connecticut, etc., and of their 
European homes. Through this varied infor- 
mation the book becomes a most important 
addition to the library of the genealogist. 

It has been printed at the DeVinne Press, 12 
Lafayette Place, New York, as a 4to volume of 
797 PP-' including index. Price $10.00

Wights in America. — The book contains 
not only descendants of Thomas Wight of the 
name of Wight, but likewise his descendants, 
for several generations, of other names than 
Wight. There are many instances where the 
line is continued four, five, six and seven genera- 
tions after the name Wight has disappeared. 
In addition there are more than one hundred 
pedigrees, long or short, of families that have 
intermarried with the Wights — such as Adams, 
Alden, Baxter, Belknap, Cleveland, Corbin, 
Corey, Denison, Everett, Fairbanks, Fletcher? 
Griswold, Grant, etc. The book would adorn 
any table. The edition is limited. The price

Soldiers of King Philip's War. — In 
January, 1883, the Rev. Mr. Bodge commenced 
in the New England Historical and Genealogical 
Register a series of articles under the title of 
"Soldiers of King Philip's War." Thirty- 
three numbers were published, the last of which 
appeared in April, 1891. They furnished lists 
of the soldiers of Massachusetts Colony who 
served in the Indian war of 1675 — ^^11 1 with 
sketches of the principal officers and copies of 
ancient documents and records relating to the 
war. 

The value of this new contribution to the 



historical and biographical literature of New 
England can at once be seen. 

This series of articles has been reprinted in a 
handsome octavo volume of 328 pages, with a 
full index of names. The introduction to the 
vclume gives an historical review of the events 
of the war. 

Price, $5.00. By mail, ^5.12. Only a small 
edition — 97 copies — has been issued ; and those

GEORGE BARRELL EMERSON. 

An extract by permission fro77i R. C. Waiter son''s inemoir. 




N the town of Wells, Maine, Sept. 12, 1797, (then a part of 
Massachusetts), George B. Emerson was born. His father 
was a graduate of Harvard, a man of uncommon ability, 
with scholarly tastes, acquirements, and an able physician. Beloved 
and respected, he not only had a wide professional practice, but he 
made the schools a special object of his care. He had the right 
word for parents and pupils, and exerted a beneficent influence 
wherever he went. 

Mr. Emerson's grandfather was a clergyman in Hollis, New 
Hampshire, where he was an acceptable preacher, and was widely 
known through the county of Hillsborough for the pre-eminent 
skill with which he fitted young men for college. His gift of teach- 
ing was transmitted from father to son, and gained with time, fresh 
impulse and inspiration. 

Mr. Emerson's boyhood had nothing in it of special excitement. 
He was contented and happy with the simplest method of life. 

Quiet in his manners, but deeply in earnest. He possessed an 
excellent balance of character. It never appeared to be an effort 
for him to acquire knowledge, and when acquired it appeared to re- 



450 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 

main a part of himself and had no tendency to be forgotten. Only 
in the winter months did George attend school. In the summer he 
worked upon his father's farm and garden. At first thought, this 
may appear to have been a serious privation, and to many it would 
have proved so; but George accounted this a piece of great good 
Jfortune. It gave him that out-of-door life, the benefit of which he 
felt through all his after years. 

The most fragile plant he studied with unwearied care, and not 
a tree of the forest escaped his notice; each revealed to him some 
secret law of its being. 

Preparatory to entering Harvard College, he attended for a time 
the Dummer Academy at Byfield where he devoted himself to Latin 
and Greek. Any additional preparation was made at home under 
the care of his father. In 1813 he commenced his college life, and 
here he attempted to make four hours' sleep balance twenty of work. 
As the result he became nearly blind and his whole physical system 
broke down; he was then obliged to cease work and place himself 
under his father's professional care until he recovered his health. 

While at Cambridge he was appointed Tutor in mathematics and 
Natural Philosophy. During the college vacations Mr. Emerson 
taueht school in accordance with the o^eneral custom. In the 
Junior year he took a school situated near the saw-mills at Saco, 
where he was called to govern as rude and boisterous a set of young 
people as could well be found. He spoke of a flame which one day 
burst from the windows of the old school-house, and in half an hour 
there was nothing left but a handful of ashes. In the Senior year 
he taught a school at Bolton, where he found pupils more to his 
taste. 

On graduating from Harvard he at once made teaching his busi- 
ness and this he followed for more than forty years; in this capacity 
he aimed, under all circumstances, to develop that which was no- 
blest, truest and best. But it was not simply as a school teacher 



Maine Historical and Ge^iealogical Recorder. 451 

that Mr. Emerson exerted his power. He became one of the fore- 
most lecturers in the sciences our country has produced. 

In the works of nature he everywhere beheld the proofs of a 
Supreme Intelligence, and was grateful if he could in any degree be 
to others an interpreter of the divine thought. 

Mr. Emerson with his broad sympathy, could not pass by any of 
the sciences with indifference. They each had their peculiar 
interests. But life is too short, and the faculties of man too limited 
to enable any one to grasp the whole domain of nature, or master 
the entire realm of knowledge, and as a rule some one department 
of study will through inevitable circumstances gain a preference. 
Hence, from various causes, botanical researches occupied much of 
Mr. Emerson's time and thought. The trees, shrubs, plants and 
flowers of New England held a prominent place in his mind. The 
professorship of Natural History, and the direction of the Botanical 
Garden at Harvard University, were offered to him, showing how 
fully his tastes were understood and his acquirements recognized. 

Though he declined this professorship, the love of nature clung 

to him. His thoughts went back to the old homestead, his work and 

observations on the farm and in the garden. Trees and flowers 

were the study of his childhood, and the delight of his advancing 

years. 

Familiar as Mr. Emerson was with the agricultural and botanical 

products of New England, he could not be satisfied with anything 
which might appear superficial. He therefore devoted ten or twelve 
weeks through nine successive summers to exploring the whole 
Commonwealth of Massachusetts, penetrating through all the ad- 
joining States, and left nothing undone which might add to the value 

of his investigations. 

The full report of these explorations published by order of the 

Legislature, in 1846 was widely welcomed, and after a quarter of a 

century "Emerson's Trees and Shrubs of Massachusetts" still retains 

its popularity, while the recognition of its literary merit and sub- 



452 Mame Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

stantial worth will cause it to be handed down from generation to 
generation. 

One of the last labors of Mr. Emerson's life was to carefully 
revise the whole work, sparing no expense to have its information 
complete down to that time, and its illustrations such as should re- 
flect honor upon his country. These volumes, for exactness of 
knowledge, thoroughness of detail, artistic skill and consummate 
genius in the illustrative drawings with a perfect adaptation to the 
purpose for which the work was prepared, render it a fitting monu- 
ment to the memory of the writer. 

Mr. Emerson traveled extensively in his own country and in 
Europe. His familiarity with history, science and literature, must 
have given him through all his journey ings, a fresh impulse to his 
mind; while his intimacy with the ancient and modern languages 
enabled him to converse freely everywhere with men of letters, artists 

and artisans. 

In 1859 he received from Harvard University the degree of Doc- 
tor of Laws. He was early elected a member of the American 
Academy of Arts and Sciences, of which through many years he 
continued a valuable associate. 

It is understood to have been throuo-h Mr. Emerson's influence 
that his friend Mr. James Arnold, of New Bedford, left the munifi- 
cent bequest upon which the Arnold Arboretum at Cambridge is 

founded. 

Mr. Emerson married in 1823, Olivia, daughter of the Rev. Dr. 

Buckminister of Portsmouth, N. H., and sister of the Rev. Joseph 
S. Buckminister one of the cherished names of New Eno-land. Mr5. 
Emerson died in 1832, leaving three children. George, who 
graduated at Cambridge in 1845; and after spending two years in 
Europe died in 1848. Francis, the second son took his degree at 
Harvard in 1849, and died in 1867. The only daughter, Lucy sur- 
vives, and is tlic wife of the Hon. John Lowell of Brookline, Mass. 
In 1834 Mr. Emerson married Mary Flemming, daughter of the 



Mame Historical and Geiiealogical Recorder. 



453 



late William Rotch, of New Bedford, and sister of Mrs. James 
Arnold. 

The whole life of George B. Emerson portrayed the attractiveness 
of truth. With clear perceptions and calm judgement he was faith- 
ful to his highest convictions. Sincere in his goodness, each duty 
was fulfiled with undeviating integrity. The kind Providence that 
watched over him through all his pilgrimage attended him to the 
last, and with brightest anticipations he passed into the glorious 
future on March 4, 1 881, at the age of eighty-four years. 

"His riper age 

Marked with some act of goodness every day; 
And watched by eyes that loved him, calm and sage, 

Faded his late declining years away. 
Cheerful he gave his being up, and went 

To share the holy rest that waits a life well spent."

NEW MARBLEHEAD, NOW WINDHAM, ME. 
ECCLESIASTICAL MATTERS. 



REV. G. M. BODGE, EAST BOSTON, MASS. 




Continued from p. 270. 

MONG the conditions of the grant of the township of New 
Marblehead, those relating to the estabhshment and sup- 
port of public worship were the chief. 

The Proprietors were to lay out two full shares, one for the min- 
istry (to be for the support of preaching) and one for the first settled 
minister (as his own private property.) Also that the said proprie- 
tors or grantees "shall settle a learned orthodox minister and build 
a convenient Meeting-house for the publick worship of God, within 
five years." At the meeting of the Proprietors in Marblehead, 
Mass., (where all except Thomas Chute still lived) held June 9th., 
1737, it was voted to build the meeting-house as soon as possible. 
The meeting-house was to be "forty by thirty feet and ten feet 
stud." It was to be built on the Westernmost corner of the ministry 
Lot" (No. 33) East side of main Road and a space of ten rods square 
was to be cleared around it to prevent destruction by forest fires. 
A contract for buildins^ this edifice was made with Nathaniel Coq^s- 
well for the sum of one hundred pounds. The building was begun 
in the winter of 1737 — 8, but was interrupted by the Indians who 
forbade the workmen to proceed, and the work had to be abandoned. 
It seems probable from a reference in a petition of the Inhabitants 
to the General Court, years afterwards, that the building had been 
raised and boarded in, and was 38 feet long by 28 feet wide and 14 
feet stud. According to the votes of the Proprietors previously 
given (pp 21 — 29) it appears that they voted to finish the meeting- 
house suitable for the use of the inhabitants, by laying a double 
boarded floor and putting four windows in the sides and ends. 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 487 

April 1 6, 1 74 1, it was voted to put the meeting-house in suitable 
condition and procure a Preacher according to the vote the year 
before. October 5, 1 741, it was voted to hire Mr. Nicholas Hodge 
to preach, and to pay him forty-five shillings per. Sabbath for every 
Sabbath he shall preach. Mr. Hodge probably preached occasion- 
ally though, I find no record of it in the Proprietor's Book. He 
was then teaching school in Falmouth while pursuing his studies for 
the ministry. He was born in Newbury, 1 719, graduated at Har- 
vard College 1739. Taught the Grammar School in Falmouth 
1737 — 1743, and died in the latter year. In 1742 Rev. John Wight 
of Dedham, Mass. supplied the pulpit for some twenty-nine 
Sabbaths, and on March 3, 1743 the Proprietors voted to treat 
with him concerning a permanent settlement as minister of the 
new parish. The Committee appointed to negotiate with Mr. 
Wight, on the part of the proprietors were James Skinner Esq., 
Capt. Nathan Bowen and Mr. Jonathan Proctor, They proposed, 
in accordance with the votes of the Proprietors, to pay him, upon 
settlement, ^45, and allow him thereafter, ^30 per annum out of 
their treasury of the Proprietors until the township should be 
regularly incorporated. The call was extended soon after the meet- 
ing of the Proprietors above noted and Mr. Wight, made answer 
from his home in Dedham March 25, 1743. 

The letter of acceptance will be given below, but previous to that 
it is well to give a brief biographical notice of the man who became 
the first minister of the first Church in the town. A Genealogy of 
his family as complete as possible will be given in the department 
of Genealogy, but here only a sketch. 

John Wight was the son of Daniel and Annah (Dewring) Wight, 
married in Dedham February 17, 1686. Their youngest son was 
John, born in Dedham April 22, 1699. He graduated at Harvard 
College in 1721 and became a teacher in the schools of his native 
town, and probably for several years pursued the study of divinity 



488 Maiiie Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

with some local minister according to the custom of the times. In 
1728 he is mentioned as one of the subscribers to the history writ- 
ten by Mr. Thomas Prince, and is there referred to as of Bristol, 
Mass. It is probable that he was preaching there. July 3, 1728, 
he married at Dedham, Mary Pond, dau. of Jabez and Mary (Gay) 
who was born Nov. 22, 1706; and they lived for several years in 
Bristol, where their children John, Anna, Daniel or Benjamin and 
probably Mary were born. His wife Mary, died in Bristol June 19, 
1735. He married Mrs. Deliverance Carpenter of Rehoboth in Oct. 
1737. They had tw^o children born in Bristol and both died there 
in July 1740. Elijah born in Dedham, August 5, 1742 died in 
New Marblehead October 24, 1744, aged 2 years 2 months and 19 
days. Eunice, born in New Marblehead April 28, 1747. Benjamin, 
born March 19, 1753. The call was given and accepted in March 
1 743 and below is given the text of his answer to the call of the 
Proprietors, as recorded in their Record-book. 

Mr. John Wight's answer to the proposals made him by the Com- 
mittee appointed, therefor, for settling in the ministry at the Town- 
ship according to former votes for that purpose. 

Gentlemen : 

I have considered the votes of the proprietors relating to my set- 
tlement in the ministry at New Marblehead (which I suppose are founded on the 
desires of the Inhabitants and interest of the Proprietors) as maturely as I am able 
in so short a time, and In answer thereto I hereby signifie to you Gentlemen, That 
I am willing to settle in the Ministry there upon Suitable Conditions, and as your 
votes mention my giving under my hand and seal That I will take upon me Ordi- 
nation and continue in said Township and perform the Pastoral Office till Death, 
or I shall be orderly dismissed. 

Gentlemen, In answer to which I say that I shall be willing to be ordained as 
soon as a church can be gathered there and if you will please to give assurance 
that your late vote shall be esteemed a call to settle there in the Ministry, so far as 
to entitle me, (upon my acceptance of it) to the settlement you have voted or may 
vote : And to the Lands Granted to the first Settled Minister, and will take some 
effectual care that I have my Sallery Continued after the Inhabitants and Settlers 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 489 

in said Township shall be incorporated into a Town ; and in the mean time give me 
some further reasonable help and assistance in settling and add (if you think fitt) 
so much to my Sallery as to enable me to live comfortably on, which (I trust you will 
think) can't be less than to make it equal with what I had when I went as a transient 
Preacher there. I shall upon these conditions be willing to oblige myself under 
hand and seal to take upon me Ordination and settle in the Gospel Ministry there 
for life Agreeable to the Good Laws of the Province in that case made and Pro- 
vided. And you may take this as an affirmative answer, wishing all Happiness 
Spiritual and Temporal, to you Gentlemen Proprietors, and to the Settlers at New 
Marblehead, and asking your prayers for me that I may be made the happy In- 
strument of promoting the Kingdom of Our Lord Jesus Christ, I remain Gentlemen 

Your Obliged humble Servant 

John Wight. 

Dedham March ye 25th, 1743.

It appears that Mr. Wight began his work very soon as he gives 
receipts for ten pounds on March 28th. and for fifty pounds bills of 
credit (old tenor) the following August. The Meeting House was 
found to be in very bad condition and in September the votes of 
the Proprietors show that the votes taken for several years to re- 
pair it, had not been carried out, but now additional measures were 
taken, to build seats and a suitable pulpit. It was resolved not to 
prosecute Nath'l Cogswell for breech of contract, as had been voted 
at a previous meeting. It was also voted to pay to Mr. Wight the 
sum of seven pounds and ten shillings to defray the expenses of his 
Ordination, to be expended by him according to his judgment. 

Mr. Wight had Lot No. 34 and acquired No. 35 upon which he 
built his house. The Meeting-House was built upon No. 33, and 
the Province Fort on No. 34. The Ordination of Mr. Wight took 
place December 14, 1743. We have no detailed account of the af- 
fair. The Records of the Falmouth Church preserve the item that 
Rev. Thomas Smith and the two deacons Henry Wheeler and 
Samuel Cobb were chosen del estates to attend. Mr. Smith in his 
Journal on Dec. 14 says only "Mr. Wight was ordained." As he 
does not mention that he preached the sermon it seems doubtful, 
as he was the senior minister in this vicinity, that would have been 



Maine Historical and Ge^iealogical Recorder. 491 

the usual course, unless some of the ministers from the older settle- 
ments in New Hampshire or Massachusetts should have visited Mr 
Wight for that occasion. Is is likely that the ministers and dele- 
gates from Saco and Scarborough were present. We know that a 
small church was gathered here at that time, as a necessary pre- 
liminary to the settlement of a minister. Mr. Thomas Chute and 
his wife Mary with their daughter Abigail, were dismissed from 
the Church in Falmouth, which they had joined on removing from 
Marblehead in 1737. Thomas Haskel, lived in Falmouth near the 
New Marblehead line, but was dismissed in order to join the new 
church, there being a scarcity of members. Mr. Wight makes no 
record of the original members, but records the names of those ad- 
mitted afterwards,. But I think that Abraham Anderson and Baths- 
hua his wife, Thomas Bolton and his wife Mary were original mem- 
bers. There may have been a few more.

HISTORICAL EXCERPTA FROM MY NOTE BOOKS. 



BY J. P. BAXTER.

History, especially of Maine History, and are disconnected and fragmentary. Scraps of informa-

MATTERS RELATING TO DAVID DUNBAR, SURVEYOR GENERAL, IN THE 

PROVINCE OF MAINE. 




Nov. I, 1733. 
OV. Belcher sent a message to the Assembly relative to 
the offer of Dunbar to pay the expenses of Fort Frederick 
till the King's pleasure might be known. The Governor 
said, 

" But I should think it wou'd be more for the Honour of this 
Government that you made a suitable Provision for the support of 
that Fort and did encourage and protect these Infant Plantations. " 
The Assembly voted 

That the Governor " be desired (if he sees cause) to demolish 
Fort Mary at Winter Harbor so that it be no longer accounted a 
Fort, and remove the Ofificers and Soldiers with all the Artillery 
and Stores there to Pemaquid, where the old Fort was. Ordered 
that therefore the said Ofificers and Soldiers shall be retained on the 
pay of this Government for the space of three years next coming." 
Dunbar named the tract of land between the " Kennebeck and 
Sheepscot river " New Castle," in honor of his patron. 



502 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

April 4, 1733. Speech of Gov. Belcher to the Assembly. 
Gentlemen: 

Since I met you last Mr. Secretary has received a letter from the 
Honourable Col. David Dunbar from Peinaqiiid, which shall be de- 
livered you, and there you will find he is removing from the Lands 
of the Province in and about Peniaqtiid, in conformity to His 
Majesty's Royal Orders, and that if any Soldiers should be sent 
down, they may be accommodated with House room within the 
Fort, and since there is now something done toward the rebuilding 
of that Fort, I hope you will make the necessary Provision for 
rendering it strong and defensible, for the KING'S Honour, and 
for the safety of that part of our Frontiers. This, doubtless, is the 
respect and duty you can express to His Majesty in return for His 
ready Justice and Goodness shown you in answer to your earnest 
solicitations for removing the said Col. Dunbar, and for His Majes- 
ty's, declaring at the same time His Royal Pleasure, that this 
Province and every particular Proprietor of the Lands before men- 
tioned, should quietly enjoy their just and lawful rights." 

To this no reply was made and on Aug. 15, 1733, the Governor 
again addressed the Assembly. 

Gentlemen : 

You may remember I laid before the Assembly in April last, a 
letter from the Honourable Col. Dunbar, mentioning his intention 
of removing from Fredericks' F'ort, and from off the lands in and 
about Pemaquid; I am now to inform you, that I have received a 
letter from that Gentleman a few days since, w^hich Mr. Secretary 
shall deliver you, giving an Account that he has fully comply'd 
with His Majesty's Royal Orders, and that the Fort is now without 
officers or men to take the least care of it and that there is also a 
great number of His Majesty's Subjects on these Lands, in very 
difiicuU circumstances for want of the Care and Protection of this 
Government, and for which tlicy have made earnest application to 



Maine Historical a7id Genealogical Recorder, 603 

me. I must therefore desire you now to look back on your repeated 
solicitations to His Majesty respecting that Country and to con- 
sider your great Obligations of duty and Gratitude to the KING 
for his Goodness in hearing and granting your Request; and then I 
would hope you will no longer let that Fort and country continue 
desolate and neglected, as at this Day ; but that you will do what 
may be reasonably expected for the Honour of the KING'S Gov- 
ernment, in the Protection and encouragement of the Settlements 
there, — and you will do well to consider of the Reasonableness of 
making an equitable Reimbursement to the Hon. Col. Dunbar, 
of his expense in Rebuilding the Fort, Barracks, &c." 

Col. Dunbar's letter here referred to was dated Portsmouth, N. 
H., Aug. loth, 1733. 

Ater consideration of this communication from the Governour, 
the following answer was made to it. 
"May it please your Excellency: 

The House have very carefully considered that part of your Ex- 
cellency's Speech relating to Col. Dunbar, and the Buildings he 
has erected at Pemaquid called Fredricks' Fort; and they readily 
and joyfully acknowledge His Majesty's great Justice and Goodness 
in confirming the Jurisdiction of this Province over those Eastern 
Lands and shall treat the people on them with the same Care and 
Justice as other His Majesty's Good Subjects in the rest of the 
Province, and who have the same Provision for Justice by Courts 
established in the Country to which they belong, as well as Justices 
of the Peace lately appointed by your Excellency living near 
Pemaquid, as other parts of the Province have. 

But as it has been heretofore thought upon the most mature Con- 
sideration, that it would be of little or no Service to the Province, and 
a great Charge and Burthen to establish and support any Fort at 
Pemaquid, so this House cannot but think it would be laying a 
heavy and unnecessary Charge on the People we Represent, who 



504 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

are already under a great and almost insupportable load of Debt, 
to fix upon them the expense of a Fort or Garrison as your Ex- 
cellency recommends, especially now in time of profound Peace." 

In a letter of Arthur Slade, to the Lord's Commissioners, June 
29, 1734, the writer says that in 1730, David Dunbar appointed 
three country deputies to supply the place of his brother whom 
he sent to London, and promised to pay them liberally from the 
trees seized by them, which had been cut down unlawfully, but as 
they could get nothing from this, " they took upon themselves to 
grant Licenses to the country people to cut down the King's Woods, 
at pleasure, so that the whole Province of Maine was in a manner 
Farmed out to those that would give most, whereby the King's 
Interest was very much prejudiced and the Woods every where de- 
stroyed. "I made" he says, "progress into the Province of Maine 
where I obtained several of those licenses and transmitted them to 
the Surveyor General then residing at Pemaquid, at the same time 
advising him to dismiss those Country Deputies and appoint two 
Salary Officers — this advice best known to Surveyor General, was 
despised, and the matter dropt. " 

Dunbar asked the opinion of the Advocate General, Shirley, in 
relation to some of his proceedings. Shirley replied May 6, 1734, 
" I am clearly of the opinion that you can't justify stopping vessels at 
the fort and advise to withdraw that Order forthwith. 

The only method that I can think of in this case, is for the Deputy 
Judge to grant a Special Warr^ to search all suspected vessels pass- 
ing by the fort, the Boards having been taken away in contempt of 
his Decree. This might give some light, and might be justified. 

The Order for Impressing of men etc, I think was very Regular. 
I don't think you are bound by law to bear the expenses of the 
wounded men. But as this is what common Humanity dictates 
should be done for the Honour of the Governm^ The Gen^ Court 
unless they approve of this Riot and outrage ought to bear the 



Maine Historical and Gejiealogical Recorder. 505 

charges as also of the Boat cut to pieces : But I don't apprehend 
y^ Col. Gilman is liable to answer for it, tho' it was in his custody, 
unless he was accessory to it." B. T. Pap. 24, B, 26, Public Records 
Office. 

Dunbar impressed several men and sent them to Exeter to the 
Mills of Major Nicholas Gilman and his sons, to seize a quantity of 
pine boards, joist and logs which he claimed belonged to the king. 
This resulted in a riot, and his men were set upon and beaten ; 
hence Dunbar asked to be advised whether he was legally liable for 
the expenses of taking care of those who were wounded, and dis- 
abled. He also gave orders to stop all vessels passing the fort so as 
to prevent the shipment of the lumber. All this caused a great 
commotion and Dunbar to excuse himself obtained affidavits of a 
plot to kill him by three Natick Indians, which was probably a 
hoax. 

See Belcher's severe letter to Dunbar, May 2, 1734. 

Dunbar accused Armstrong of illegal practices in selling logs 
contrary to orders. 

April 25, 1734 was appointed a day of Public Fasting, "in con- 
sideration of the present commotions in Europe (which seem to 
threaten war among the Nations there, with which his Maj'*^^^' 
Plantations in America will be affected) as also the present state of 
affairs in this Province, and of the occasions this Spring and 
Summer ensuing," but Dunbar refused to entertain it in New 
Hampshire and wrote an insolent letter toGov. Belcher when it was 
sent him. 

Dunbar fired upon a vessel passing the fort after refusing 
passage for three days, and Gov Belcher sent affidavits of the fact 
to England. 

Nov. 13, 1733, Scheme for establishing a bank. The Assembly 
refused its sanction of the scheme. 

The feeling against Dunbar ran high. Affidavits were printed

and circulated bearing the names of Samuel Waldo, Ebenezer 
Holmes, Benjamin Pollard and William Shirley, that Elisha Cooke 
when he drank the health of Dunbar " Drank him as a Private 
Gentleman only, and not as Govenour of this Province." 

May 8, 1734. 

Dunbar, in a letter to the Lord's Commissioners, accuses his 
predecessors and their deputies of raising " contributions upon the 
loggers, who were very Disorderly upon being restrained by me and 
my Dept^." 

At the May meeting of the Assembly, 1735, Quakers were ex- 
empted from taxes for the support of religious worship, and the 
amount assessed on the other inhabitants. 

During Gov. Bernard's administration the subject of the title of 
the Province, to land between the Penobscot and St. Croix assumed 
importance, and he wrote to the Lords of Trade calling their at- 
tention anew to the merits of the rival claims, which had for some 
time been before them. He said, " Some question has lately been 
made of the validity of Title of the Province to the Lands between 
the Rivers Penobscot and St. Croix, the merits of their claim has 
been at large laid before your Lordship. " 

Bernard also speaks of the great importance of the distillery 
of molasses into New England rum and the bad effect of obstruct- 
ing it; that rum is largely used in the trade with Newfoundland 
and in the fisheries ; is consumed by the inland inhabitants (per- 
haps too much) but after all is really necessary to the chief part of 
the trade. England need not fear " Trades and Manufactures set up 
here, since whatever is saved or gained here will be sent to Great 
Britain to purchase other things. Superfluities are laid out in 
luxury. American Luxuries is almost wholly supplied from Great 
Britian, therefore all profit in America must centre in Great Britain. 
Even illegal Trade where the balance is in favor of the British 
Subject makes its final return to Great Britain." An idea of the 



Maine Historical and Ge^iealogical Recorder, 507 

commerce of Massachusetts may be had from the Report of the 
number of vessels passing outward by Castle William from July i, 
1762, to July I, 1763; viz: 40 Ships: 17 Scows; 107 Brigs; 178 
Schooners; 294 Sloops : total 636. 

" The whole supply of clothing is from Great Britian, except 
among the poor who make coarse cloth. Shoes are made in New 
England. Trade with Dutch and Danish Plantations, in one of the 
former, Suriname, the English have considerable estates." Dur- 
ing the war with France and before that with Spain a considerable 
trade with Monte Cristo; returns chiefly French sugar. No trade 
directly with French settlements called the ' Flag of France trade ' 

because not approved by Great Britain." 

These are in Reports of the state of the American Colonies, p. 

205-272 Brit. Mus. 

The following will be interesting as showing how the Colonies 

were regarded in England. 

"A short Discourse on the present state of the Colonies in 

America with respect to the Interest of Great Britain, by Sir Wil- 
liam Keith, Knt. sometime Dep. Gov. of Pennsylvania." 

" Happy are the people whose lot it is to be governed by a Prince 
who does not wholly depend upon the representations of others, 
but makes it a chief part of his delight to inspect into the con- 
dition of his subjects;" — "Every act of dependent Provincial 
government therefore ought to terminate in the advantage of the 
Mother State unto whom it owes its being and by whom it is 
protected in all its valuable privileges." 

The great advantages the Colonies owe to G. Britain in consum- 
ing its products and furnishing ships and men necessary to support 
the Sugar Plantations in W. I. The colonies are only to be con- 
sidered " as so many Corporations at a distance invested with ability 
to make temporary By-Laws for themselves agreeable to their 
respective situations and climates, but no ways interfering with the 
legal prerogative of the Crown." 



508 



Maine Historical and Ge^iealogical Recorder. 



" They cannot be possessed of any rightful capacity to contradict 
or evade the true intent and force of any act of ParHament where- 
with the wisdom of Great Britain may think fit to affect them from 
time to time, and in discoursing on their legislative powers (improp- 
erly so called in a dependent government) we are to consider 
them only as so many Corporations." 

See Public Ledger, May 4, 1778. Address of English Roman 
Catholics on account of the present infamous Rebellion of the In- 
dependent and Presbyterian Colonists of New England and other 
Colonies seduced by them" to his Majesty, St. James, May 2, 1778. 

"A week or two after this address, the Patriots, as they call 
themselves, with Sir George Saville at their head, moved in the 
House of Commons for a Piece of Justice never expected from 
that quarter; and may no ill design attend it! It was to repeal the 
sanguinary Laws against Roman Catholics, which have disgraced 
this country for above two centuries. It was opposed by Mr. Chas. 
Ambler, Kings Counsel and Solicitor General to the Queen. 

Chas. Turner Esq., member for York, said he "Detested the cruel 
policy which reduced men, by nature free, to a state of slavery. 
Religion, he said, had always been an Engine in the hands of Power 
to enslave mankind. He wished to see his fellow subjects free. 
Catholics and Dissenters alike, and an universal Toleration estab- 
lished by Law."

English spelling is the worst in the world. 
Millions of dollars are wasted each year in the 
writing and printing of useless letters. The 
education of our children is retarded and the 
progress of our people is hampered by our 
cumbrous, illogical, misleading orthografy, The 
scholarship of the world is almost a unit in de- 
manding a change. The American Philogical 
Association has recommended the following 
Rules for New Spellings, and a resolution 
has been introduced in Congress, instructing the 
Public Printer to conform to them in all print- 
ing for the government. 

1. Drop ue at the end of words like dialogue, 
catalogue, etc., where the preceeding vowel is 
short. Thus spell demagog, epilog, synagog, 
etc. 

2. Drop final e in such words as definite and 



infinite, favorite, etc., where the preceeding 
vowel is short. Thus spell opposit preterit, 
hypocrit, requisit, etc. 

3. Drop final te in words like quartette, 
coquette, cigarette, etc. Thus spell cigaret* 
roset, epulet, vedet, gazet, etc. 

4. Drop final me in words like programme. 
Thus spell program, oriflam, gram, etc. 

5. Change ph to F in words like phantom, 
telegraph, phase, etc. Thus spell alfabet, 
paragraph, filosofy, fonetic, fotography etc. 

6. Substitute e for the difthongs M and ce 
when they have the sound of that letter. Thus 
spell eolian, esthetic, diarrhea, subpena, esofagus, 
atheneum, ets. 

^^^^If you would array yourself on the side 
of progress, adopt the foregoing in all that you 
write, and especially in all that you print.

Near the bottom of p. 492 Mr. Emerson died in 1832 ; should be Mrs. Emerson. 

By a mistake too late to correct, the pages in this volume were continued from the preceeding
